Nadworna largely shares the history of Ukraine and Galicia / Poland

The village was probably founded in 1596, when it was in the aristocratic republic of Poland-Lithuania in the Ruthenian Voivodeship. After the first partition of Poland in 1772, the city fell to Austria, from 1850 it was the seat of the district administration Nadwórna and a district court from 1867. After the end of the First World War , the place fell to Poland in 1919 and was from 1921 in the Stanislau voivodeship . In 1939, at the beginning of World War II , it fell to the Ukrainian SSR . In the 1930s there was increased activity in the region by the Ukrainian nationalist movement OUN under Stepan Bandera . From 1941 to 1944 Nadworna was occupied by the German Wehrmacht and then fell back to the Soviet Union.

Under the direction of Hans Krüger , members of the German security police station Stanisławów carried out a mass shooting of Polish Jews in Nadwirna on October 6, 1941, and another on the so-called Bloody Sunday of October 12 on the outskirts of Stanisławów. More than 10,000 people were killed in these two murders; of which probably 1200 to 2000 in Nadwirna. After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the city became part of independent Ukraine.
