History

In 1947 the village was renamed, in the context of the removal of Germans from the German-originated Frankštát to Nový Malín (New Malín) in honor of Český Malín, a Czech village in Volhynia (today's Ukraine) destroyed by Nazis (with the help of Poles (or Polish speakers)) just 4 years before with 374 Czechs being killed. Several survivors from Český Malín also settled in Nový Malín.
