I couldn't find any town named "Bogdan" in that country that is now
divided between the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Is there someone who knows what is the real name of "Bogdan" ?

Eve,

Part of pre WWII Czechoslovakia has been also ceded as part of
Transcarpathia region to USSR in June 1945.
Currently town Bogdan (or Bohdan) is known as Belaya Tissa in Ukraine
at 4803 2422, located just North >from the Romanian-Ukrainian border,
close to the larger Jewish town Rakhiv . BTW, prior to WWI town Bogdan
was known as Tiszabogdany.

There is an oh so simple way to find this town...go to the JewishGen
Communities database and search for towns beginning with BOG...i found
Nyirbogdany, Hungary, also known as Bogdan in Yiddish. That's one of
the special features of our communities database...it contains the
Yiddish names of the towns.

Isnt JewishGen wonderful!?!

That's nice but a bit misleading.

The 1913 gazeteer of greater Hungary (bogardi.com) lists eight places
for "bogdan", where it is the customary Hungarian usage to prepend an
adjective, such as "nyir-" or "tisza-" to distinguish it >from other
places with the same name.

In this particular case, Nyirbogdany is one of the two that are still
in present-day Hungary (Dunabogdany is the other), that were never
part of Czechoslovakia - which probably rules them out. Three of the
others are in present-day Slovakia, 2 in Romania, and 1 in Ukraine.
Only 2 of the hits were in the same megye (county).

The four most likely candidates are the 3 Slovak towns, and the one in
the Ukraine, and my bet is on Tiszabogdany (Maramaros), which is
present-day Bohdan in the Ukraine. (It's also in the JewishGen
communities database.)

PS. "Bogdan" was once a very common given name, of Slavic origin,
which means "gift of god" (equivalent to "Theodore" or "Netanyahu" :-)).
It later became a surname, as well as a place name.
