Palaď-Komarivtsi was part of the Kingdom of Hungary (11th century - 1918 and 1938-1944) with the name of Palágykomoróc in Ung megye (county), next part of Czechoslovakia (1918-1938) with the name of Palaď-Komárovce in Podkarpatská Rus (Sub-Carpathia), then part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (1945-1991) with the name of Palad-Komarowzy and, since 1991, known as Palaď-Komarivtsi, in the Uzhhorodskiy rayon (district) of Zakarpats'ka oblast (county) of Ukraine.
Other spellings/names for Palaď-Komarivtsi are Palad Komarivtsi and Palad-Komariwzi.
Palaď-Komarivtsi is located about 12 miles SSW of Uzhhorod (Ungvár).
Jews probably settled in Palaď-Komarivtsi in the late 18th century.
By 1921, during the Czechoslovakian period, a number of Jews were engaged in agriculture, while others were involved in the trades and commerce.
With the Hungarian occupation of Palaď-Komarivtsi in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, Jews from Palaď-Komarivtsi 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 Palaď-Komarivtsi were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.
A great many of the Jews from Palaď-Komarivtsi were murdered in Auschwitz and any survivors settled elsewhere.
In 2001, Palaď-Komarivtsi had about 834 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
