~ History ~

Jews probably settled in Malyy Berëznyy in the first half of the 18th century.

In 1880, the Jewish population was 112.

With the Hungarian occupation of Malyy Berëznyy in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, dozens of Jews from Malyy Berëznyy 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 Malyy Berëznyy were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.

A great many of the Jews from Malyy Berëznyy were murdered in Auschwitz and any survivors settled elsewhere.

In 2001, Malyy Berëznyy had about 1,597 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
