Beregdaroc Jewish Cemetery
The Jewish cemetery in Beregdaróc existed as early as 1855, according to the date on the earliest found tombstone in the cemetery. While the latest tombstone dates to 1924, the community is said to have existed until 1944.
Beregdaróc is a village in Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg county. In 1880, the total population of the village was 850, 56 of whom were Jewish. The Jewish population slowly declined and, by 1930, there were only 38 Jewish residents. By 1941 it had risen slightly to 48 Jewish residents, however this was still only 3.6% of the town’s population (1,334). There used to be a synagogue, where male members of the small community (between 30-100 people) gathered primarily for Shabbat services (Friday evening and Saturday morning prayers). The synagogue was on Szabadság Street and is now used as a home. Under the German occupation, the Jewish communities of Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg county were destroyed and deported. The final transport from the Beregszász Ghetto (where the Jews of Beregdaróc were confined) to Auschwitz departed on May 29, 1944. Around 40,000 Jews were transported from Beregszász during that month, including Jews from Beregdaróc and the surrounding areas.
