was part of the Kingdom of Hungary (11th century - 1920 and 1938-1944) with the name of Dulfalva
in Máramaros megye (county), next part of Czechoslovakia (1920-1938) with the name of Dulovo in Podkarpatská Rus (Sub-Carpathia), then part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (1945-1991) with the name of Dulovo and, since 1991, known as Dulovo, in the Tiachivskiy rayon (district) of Zakarpats'ka oblast (county) of Ukraine.
In Yiddish, Dulovo was known as Dilif.
Other spellings/names for Dulovo are Dulfalu, Dulove, Dileve and Dulowo.
Dulovo is located about 9 miles N of Tyachiv (Técső).
Jews probably settled in Dulovo in the late 18th century.
In 1880, the Jewish population was 34 (of a total population of 926).
By 1910, the Jewish population increased to 68.
By 1921, during the Czechoslovakian period, the Jewish population decreased to 67. A number of Jews were engaged in agriculture, while others were involved in the trades and commerce.
In 1930, the Jewish population decreased to 60.
With the Hungarian occupation of Dulovo in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, Jews from Dulovo 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 increased to 77 and it was at this time, Jewish families without Hungarian citizenship were expelled to Nazi occupied Ukrainian territory, to Kamenets-Podolski, and murdered there.
The remaining Jews of Dulovo were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.
A great many of the Jews from Dulovo were murdered in Auschwitz and any survivors settled elsewhere.
In 2001, Dulovo had about 2,420 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
