A significant battle of the Russo-Polish War (1654-1667) was fought near the town in 1660, followed by a treaty between the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and the Cossacks, named after the city. In 1866 Polish Romantic-era novelist Henryk Rzewuski died in Chudniv. The Jewish population was important in the town. During World War II, the Germans occupied the town and kept the Jews imprisoned in a ghetto. In 1941, they were murdered in mass executions perpetrated by an Einsatzgruppen of Germans and Ukrainian policemen.
