Radomyshl ( Ukrainian Радомишль ; Russian Радомышль ) is a city in the Ukrainian Oblast Zhytomyr with about 15,000 inhabitants. It is located on the Teteriv River in the historical Polesia region . Administratively, the village of Hluchiw Perschyj ( Глухів Перший ) belongs to the municipality.
The city was mentioned for the first time in 1150 under the name Mitschesk (Мічеськ). The name was derived from the Mika River.
In 1569 it was called Radomyśl ( Union of Lublin ). Since 1946 it has been called Radomyschl (Ukrainian).
In 1919 there were serious riots against the Jewish population with several hundred dead.
The synagogue was damaged in a city fire in 1926 and demolished in the 1930s.
During the Second World War Radomyschl was occupied by the German Wehrmacht from July 9, 1941 to November 10, 1943 and then again from December 7 to 26, 1943 . In August 1941 the German occupation set up a ghetto for Jews. On August 5 and 6, 1941, 276 Jews were murdered in two mass executions. When the ghetto was liquidated on September 6, 1941, the German Sonderkommando 4a, together with Ukrainian auxiliary police officers, shot 1,107 Jewish adults and 561 Jewish children in a forest. Six mass graves were later found in the area. In 1970 there were only about 250 Jews left in Radomyschl and the surrounding area.
