~ History ~

Jews probably settled in Tereblya in the first half of the 18th century, but were forced to leave—only returning in the mid-19th century.

In 1880, the Jewish population was 116 (of a total population of 1,940).

In 1910, the Jewish population was 162.

By 1921, during the Czechoslovakian period, the Jewish population decreased to 123. A number of Jews were engaged in agriculture, while others were involved in the trades and commerce.

In 1930, the Jewish population was 147.

With the Hungarian occupation of Tereblya in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, Jews from Tereblya 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 179 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 Tereblya were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.

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

In 2001, Tereblya had about 3,705 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
