Tykhyy was part of the Kingdom of Hungary (11th century - 1920 and 1938-1944) with the name of Tiha in Ung megye (county), next part of Czechoslovakia (1920-1938) with the name of Tichá in Podkarpatská Rus (Sub-Carpathia), then part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (1945-1991) with the name of Tykhyi and, since 1991, known as Tykhyy, in the Velykobereznianskiy rayon (district) of Zakarpats'ka oblast (county) of Ukraine.
Other spellings/names for Tykhyy are Tichý and Tikhi.
Tykhyy is located about 27 miles ENE of Velikiy Berëznyy (Nagyberezna).
Jews probably settled in Tykhyy in the late 18th century.
In 1880, the Jewish population was 41, and by 1910, the Jewish population was 53.
By 1921, during the Tichá period, the Jewish population rose to 49. A number of Jews were engaged in agriculture and commerce.
By 1930, the Jewish population increased to 61.
With the Hungarian occupation of Tykhyy in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, Jews from Tykhyy 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 decreased to 50 and it was at this time, a few Jewish families without Hungarian citizenship were expelled to Nazi occupied Ukrainian territory, to Kamenets-Podolski, and murdered there.
The remaining Jews of Tykhyy were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.
A great many of the Jews from Tykhyy were murdered in Auschwitz and any survivors settled elsewhere.
In 2001, Tykhyy had about 505 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
