Nevetlenfolu was part of the Kingdom of Hungary (11th century - 1920 and 1938-1944) with the name of Nevetlenfalu in Ugocsa megye (county), next part of Czechoslovakia (1920-1938) with the name of Nevetlenfalu in Podkarpatská Rus (Sub-Carpathia), then part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (1945-1991) with the name of Diakovo and, since 1991, known as Nevetlenfolu, in the Vynohradivskiy rayon (district) of Zakarpats'ka oblast (county) of Ukraine.
Other spellings/names for Nevetlenfolu are D'yakov, D'yakovo, Dyakovo, Dyakove and Nevetlenfolu.
Nevetlenfolu is located about 15 mi. S of Vynohradiv (Nagyszőllős).
Jews probably settled in Nevetlenfolu in the first half of the 18th century.
In 1880, the Jewish population was 50.
With the Hungarian occupation of Nevetlenfolu in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, dozens of Jews from Nevetlenfolu 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 Nevetlenfolu were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.
A great many of the Jews from Nevetlenfolu were murdered in Auschwitz. Five families resided here after 1945, but eventually settled elsewhere.
In 2001, Nevetlenfolu had about 1,632 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
