Volga German families settled in Vishai following the 1941 Deportation.

The fillage was badly damaged by fire in May 1991. On 11 August 2010, additional forest fires destroyed all but one home in the village. That home was removed by governmental officials and further settlement there was forbidden by government order. Nevertheless, several former residents have returned and built houses there (as evidenced by the photo).
