In 1757, Ilińce was granted Magdeburg rights by King Augustus III of Poland. It was a private town of the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland, located in the Bracław Voivodeship and owned by the Sanguszko family.

Before World War II, the majority of the population was Jewish. Germans entered the town on July 1941 and kept the Jews as prisoners in a ghetto soon after.[2] On November 1941, 43 Jews are murdered by Ukrainian policemen. On April 24, 1942, around 1,000 Jews from the town and nearby villages are assassinated in a mass execution. 700 others were murdured at the end of May 1942. At the end of 1942, remaining Jews were deported in a labor camp and the ghetto destroyed in December 1942.[3]
