Stare Davydkovo Holocaust

During the Czech era, almost all of the Jews accepted Czech citizenship and there was Jewish representation in the government in Prague. In the spring of 1939, when the Hungarians reoccupied the region, Jews were forced to apply for Hungarian citizenship by submitting documention that their ancestors had lived and paid taxes in Hungary since 1851. Some were able to demonstrate this while others were not. In 1941, most of the young men in Stare Davidkovo and the region were drafted into the Munkatabor (Forced Labor Battalions). They were sent towards the front lines against the Soviets. In April 1944, the remaining Jewish households had their valuables and belongings catalogued and confiscated. They were then rounded up in the ghetto in Mukachevo where they were ultimately transported by train to Auschwitz for extermination.
