~ History ~

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

In 1880, the Jewish population was 357 (of a total population of 854).

In 1910, the Jewish population was 361.

By 1921, during the Czechoslovakian period, the Jewish population decreased to 330. A number of Jews were engaged in agriculture, while others were involved in the trades and commerce.

In 1930, the Jewish population was 699.

With the Hungarian occupation of Radvanka in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, Jews from Radvanka 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 increased to about 725 and it was at this time, Jewish families without Hungarian citizenship were expelled to Nazi occupied Ukrainian territory, to Kamenets-Podolski, and murdered there.

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

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

In 2001, Radvanka had about 3,000 (est.) inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
