~ History ~

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

In 1880, the Jewish population was 45 (of a total population of 1,397).

In 1910, the Jewish population was 63.

By 1921, during the Czechoslovakian period, the Jewish population remained 63. A number of Jews were engaged in agriculture, while others were involved in the trades and commerce.

In 1930, the Jewish population was 59.

With the Hungarian occupation of Zarichovo in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, Jews from Zarichovo 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 56 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 Zarichovo were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.

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

In 2001, Zarichovo had about 2,283 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
