Little is known about the Jewish community of Univ. In 1880, 71 Jews were residing in Univ. The family of the Polish-American theoretical chemist who won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, Roald Hoffmann, escaped here during the Holocaust. There is information about the righteous Gentile of Univ, Mykola Dyuk, who hid Jews during the Nazi occupation.
