Biographical History

According to the First Vienna Award, southern parts of the historical Zemplín County, which formerly belonged to interwar Czechoslovakia, inhabited by approximately 55,000 people were annexed by the Hungarian Kingdom. This specific region consisted of two former Czechoslovak districts (the Medzibodrožský and the Veľké Kapušany District), as well as more than 20 localities that were attached to the Hungarian District of Sátoraljaújhely. About 3,500 Jewish residents lived in the region. The largest community was the Jewry of Kráľovský Chlmec of more than 800 Jewish inhabitants.
