~ History ~

Jews probably settled in Rakoshyno in the first half of the 18th century.

In 1880, the Jewish population was 132.

With the Hungarian occupation of Rakoshyno in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, dozens of Jews from Rakoshyno 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 Rakoshyno were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.

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

In 2001, Rakoshyno had about 3,260 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
