Chapter Summary

For many years after World War II it was thought that the mass murder of the Jews would render all forms of antisemitism illegitimate for an indefinite period of time. In light of the Holocaust's fundamental role in delegitimizing antisemitism, one such topic became the Holocaust itself: its denial, its relativization, and disclaiming responsibility—wherever possible—for the persecution of the Jews. This chapter begins with an investigation of how much the Hungarian population knew about the Holocaust. The 2006 results on the social-demographic factors influencing knowledge about the Holocaust are similar to those in 2003. In both the 1995 and the 2003 survey, the aim was to show whether or not antisemitic attitudes were concealed behind opinions about the Holocaust. The most important change in comparison with the situation in the 1990s is that opinions on the Holocaust are becoming increasingly more coherent.
