History[edit]

Zolotonosha was first mentioned in written works around the year 1576. In 1635 Zolotonosha was granted the Magdeburg rights. Following the Ukrainian War of Independence, Zolotonosha became part of Ukrainian SSR, a republic of the Soviet Union. In 1939 the 2,087 members of the Jewish community comprised 11.4% of the town's total population. On September, 1941, 300 Jews were murdered in a mass execution. On November 22, 1941, in Strunkovka, just northwest of the town, more than 3,500 Jews were killed in another massacre. The city was liberated by the Red Army on September, 1943. When the Soviet Union fell apart in 1991, the city became part of Ukraine.
