Chornotysiv was part of the Kingdom of Hungary (11th century - 1920 and 1938-1944) with the name of Feketeardó in Ugocsa megye (county), next part of Czechoslovakia (1920-1938) with the name of Černý Ardov in Podkarpatská Rus (Sub-Carpathia), then part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (1945-1991) with the name of Chernotisov and, since 1991, known as Chornotysiv, in the Vynohradivskiy rayon (district) of Zakarpats'ka oblast (county) of Ukraine.
Other spellings/names for Chornotysiv are Chernotissa, Csornotisziv and Ardin.
Chornotysiv is located about 5 miles S of Vynohradiv (Nagyszoőllős).
Jews probably settled in Chornotysiv in the first half of the 18th century.
Among the first Jewish settlers were Zvi KATZ, Moshe ZELKOVITS, Yehuda STARK and David BRAUN.
In 1880, the Jewish population was 284.
With the Hungarian occupation of Chornotysiv in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, dozens of Jews from Chornotysiv were drafted into forced labor battalions and others were drafted for service on the Eastern front, where most died.
In 1941, a few Jewish families without Hungarian citizenship were expelled to Nazi occupied Ukrainian territory, to Kamenets-Podolski, and murdered there.
The remaining Jews of Chornotysiv were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.
A great many of the Jews from Chornotysiv were murdered in Auschwitz and any survivors settled elsewhere.
In 2001, Chornotysiv had about 2,232 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
