Trostyanets' was part of the Kingdom of Hungary (11th century - 1918 and 1938-1944) with the name of Nádaspatak in Máramaros megye (county), next part of Czechoslovakia (1918-1938) with the name of Trostianice in Podkarpatská Rus (Sub-Carpathia), then part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (1945-1991) with the name of Trostyanec and, since 1991, known as Trostyanets', in the Rakhivsky rayon (district) of Zakarpats'ka oblast (county) of Ukraine.
Other spellings/names for Trostyanets' are Trostiance, Trosztyenec, Trosztyance, Trsľenec and Trosťanec.
Trostyanets' is located about 11 miles NE of Rakhiv (Rahó).
Jews probably settled in Trostyanets' in the late 18th century.
By 1921, during the Czechoslovakian period, a number of Jews were engaged in agriculture, while others were involved in the trades and commerce.
With the Hungarian occupation of Trostyanets' in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, Jews from Trostyanets' were drafted into forced labor battalions and others were drafted for service on the Eastern front, where most died.
By 1941, Jewish families without Hungarian citizenship were expelled to Nazi occupied Ukrainian territory, to Kamenets-Podolski, and murdered there.
The remaining Jews of Trostyanets' were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.
A great many of the Jews from Trostyanets' were murdered in Auschwitz and any survivors settled elsewhere.
In 2001, Trostyanets' had about 377 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
