~ History ~

Jews probably settled in Pryslip in the late 18th century.

In 1880, the Jewish population was 164 and by 1910, the Jewish population increased to 220.

By 1921, during the Czechoslovakian period, the Jewish population decreased to 199. A number of Jews were engaged in agriculture and commerce.

By 1930, the Jewish population decreased to 197.

With the Hungarian occupation of Pryslip in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, Jews from Pryslip were drafted into forced labor battalions and others were drafted for service on the Eastern front, where most died.

By 1941, the Jewish population had decreased to 163 and it was at this time, a few Jewish families without Hungarian citizenship were expelled to Nazi occupied Ukrainian territory, to Kamenets-Podolski, and murdered there.

The remaining Jews of Pryslip were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.

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

In 2001, Pryslip had about 851 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
