~ History ~

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.
