Hrymailiv (Ukrainian: Гримайлів; Polish: Grzymałów; Yiddish: רימאלאוו‎, Rimalov) is an urban-type settlement in the Husiatyn Raion (district) of Ternopil Oblast (province) in western Ukraine. Its population was 2,004 as of the 2001 Ukrainian Census.[2]


Hrymailiv was founded in 1595, and it acquired the status of an urban-type settlement in 1956. It was occupied by the Germans during World War II from 1941-1944. In 1931, its population was approximately 4,074, and about 1,494 of them were Jewish.[3]

The first anti Jewish measures were carried out on July 05, 1941, about 450 Jews were shot and thrown in the lake. on October 12, 1941, 1,700 Jews were sent to the camp in Skalat and executed shortly after. On October 21, 1941 between 1,300 and 1,700 Jews were slaughtered. On November 25, 1941 about 300 Jews from the Hrymailiv camp were sent to other camps such as Lubochok, Kamenka, Velyki Borky, and others where they were most probably executed afterwards. The remaining 305 Jews were transferred to the Skalat ghetto where they were shot in April, 1942. Overall, about 2,530 people were shot in the Hrymailiv executions.
