was part of the Kingdom of Hungary (11th century - 1918 and 1938-1944) with the name of Papitanya
in Bereg megye (county), next part of Czechoslovakia (1918-1938) with the name of Gašparov dvor
in Podkarpatská Rus (Sub-Carpathia), then part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (1945-1991) with the name of Male Popove
and, since 1991, known as Male Popovo, in the Berehivsky rayon (district) of Zakarpats'ka oblast (county) of Ukraine.
In Yiddish, Male Popovo was known as Kline Popov.
Other spellings/names for Male Popovo are Tiszatanya, Hashparov Dvor, Maloje Popowoje, Kishkot, Soniachne, and Solnechnoje.
Today, Male Popovo is within the city limits of Popovo (Csonkapapi).
Jews probably settled in Male Popovo in the late 18th century.
A number of Jews were engaged in agriculture, while others were involved in the trades and commerce.
With the Hungarian occupation of Male Popovo in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, Jews from Male Popovo were drafted into forced labor battalions and others were drafted for service on the Eastern front, where most died.
By 1941, Jewish families without Hungarian citizenship were expelled to Nazi occupied Ukrainian territory, to Kamenets-Podolski, and murdered there.
The remaining Jews of Male Popovo were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.
A great many of the Jews from Male Popovo were murdered in Auschwitz and any survivors settled elsewhere.
In 2001, Male Popovo had about 210 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
