Klenovets was part of the Kingdom of Hungary (11th century - 1920 and 1938-1944) with the name of Frigyesfalva in Bereg megye (county), next part of Czechoslovakia (1920-1938) with the name of Fridešovo in Podkarpatská Rus (Sub-Carpathia), then part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (1945-1991) with the name of Noviy Klyenovitzi and, since 1991, known as Klenovets', in the Mukachevskiy rayon (district) of Zakarpats'ka oblast (county) of Ukraine.
Other spellings/names for Klenovets' are Nyárasdomb, Újklenóc, Koltschyno, Nový Klenovec and Klenowez.
Klenovets' is located about 7.5 mi. NNE of Mukacheve (Munkács).
Jews probably settled in Klenovets' in the first half of the 18th century.
In 1880, the Jewish population was 18.
With the Hungarian occupation of Klenovets' in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, dozens of Jews from Klenovets' 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 Klenovets' were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.
A great many of the Jews from Klenovets' were murdered in Auschwitz and any survivors settled elsewhere.
In 2001, Klenovets' had about 1,287 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
