Historical overview

Presumably Jewish Cemetery in Pavlovo was established in the 19th century. Oldest one among of existing gravestones relates to 1847 and latest one to 1944.

Jews are believed to have arrived in the area of Pavlovo in the 18th century. In 1851 there were three Jews living in the village. In 1880 the Jewish population had increased to 71. By 1930 Jews population had rose to 134 individuals. Hungarian forces arrived in the town in March 1939, with the consequence that the Jews were persecuted and forced out of their occupations. Some Jews were drafted into forced labour battalions. Some were sent to the Eastern front, where most perished. In 1941 some Jews without Hungarian citizenship were expelled to Kamyanets’-Podils’kyy in Nazi-occupied Ukrainian territory and murdered. The remaining Jews of Pavlovo were deported to Auschwitz in late May 1944. No Jews live in the town today. The house of Hisser family is used for Greek-Catholic church. Hisser family was killed in Auschwitz.
