Dyida was part of the Kingdom of Hungary (11th century - 1920 and 1938-1944) with the name of Déda in Bereg megye (county), next part of Czechoslovakia (1920-1938) with the name of Deda in Podkarpatská Rus (Sub-Carpathia), then part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (1945-1991) with the name of Diyda and, since 1991, known as Dyida, in the Berehivskiy rayon (district) of Zakarpats'ka oblast (county) of Ukraine.
Other spellings/names for Dyida are Dedovo, Didove, Dijda and Dyyda .
Dyida is located about 3.5 mi. WNW from Berehove (Beregszász).
Jews probably settled in Dyida in the first half of the 18th century.
In 1880, the Jewish population was 76.
With the Hungarian occupation of Dyida in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, dozens of Jews from Dyida 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 Dyida were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.
A great many of the Jews from Dyida were murdered in Auschwitz and any survivors settled elsewhere.
In 2001, Dyida had about 2,013 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
