Historical reference:  Koryukivka was founded 364 years ago. During the reign of Hetman Bohdan Khmelnytskyi in 1657, looking for a land free from lordship, settlers from Right-Bank Ukraine led by the Cossack Omelyan Karuka chose for themselves a place reliably protected by forests and founded a small settlement - Koryukivka.

The city suffered heavy losses during the Second World War. Koryukivka was almost completely burned, the population that lived there was exterminated.

As a result of Hitler's crime, about 7,000 residents were killed (according to the act of 1944 – 6,700 people) and 1,290 houses were burned. The destruction of Koryukivka and its inhabitants by the Nazis is one of the greatest crimes committed by the Nazi occupiers in World War II in Europe. For comparison:

  1. Ukrainian Koryukivka - on March 1-2, 1943, about 7,000 people were killed and burned.
    2. Belorussian Khatyn - on March 22, 1943, 149 people were killed in the village.
    3. The Czech village of Liditsy - on June 11, 1943, 320 people were killed in the village and murdered in the concentration camp.
    4. French Oradur - on June 10, 1944, 642 people were killed in the village.
