Zablotiv is situated on the northern bank of the Prut river, about 20 kilometers east of Kolomyia, on the route between Ivano-Frankivsk (Stanislawow) and Chernivtsi. This city is first mentioned in a document that testifies to the building of a church at the site by the owner of the city, in 1630. Following the construction of a factory for tobacco, most of the agricultural lands around the city were shifted to tobacco production. This factory led to financial flourishing for the area’s farmers, but no Jews were involved in this branch. At the end of the 19th century the railway between Lvov and Chernivtsi passed through the town, and at the beginning of the 20th century, in 1905 and in 1911, two fires broke out in the city, destroying many homes and injuring several people.
