~ History ~

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

In 1880, the Jewish population was 18 (of a total population of 362).

In 1910, the Jewish population was 21.

By 1921, during the Czechoslovakian period, the Jewish population remained 18. A number of Jews were engaged in agriculture, while others were involved in the trades and commerce.

In 1930, the Jewish population was 14.

With the Hungarian occupation of Sukhyy in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, Jews from Sukhyy 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 15 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 Sukhyy were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.

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

In 2001, Sukhyy had about 395 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
