~ History ~

Jews probably settled in Bukovets' in the late 18th century.

In 1880, the Jewish population was 36.

By 1910, the Jewish population rose to 48.

In 1921, during the Czechoslovakian period, the Jewish population rose to 49. A number of Jews were engaged in agriculture and commerce.

By 1930, the Jewish population rose to 52.

With the Hungarian occupation of Bukovets' in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, dozens of Jews from Bukovets' were drafted into forced labor battalions and others were drafted for service on the Eastern front, where most died.

By 1941, the Jewish population had dropped to 36 and it was at this time, a few Jewish families without Hungarian citizenship were expelled to Nazi occupied Ukrainian territory, to Kamenets-Podolski, and murdered there.

The remaining Jews of Bukovets' were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.

A great many of the Jews from Bukovets' were murdered in Auschwitz and any survivors settled elsewhere.

In 2001, Bukovets' had about 465 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
