was part of the Kingdom of Hungary (11th century - 1920 and 1938-1944) with the name of Macsola

Mochola is located about five miles south of Berehove (Beregszász).
Jews probably settled in Mochola in the first half of the 18th century.
In 1880, the Jewish population was 12.
With the Hungarian occupation of Mochola in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, dozens of Jews from Mochola 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 Mochola were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.
A great many of the Jews from Mochola were murdered in Auschwitz and any survivors settled elsewhere.
In 2001, Mochola had about 675 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
