Chapter Summary

A large part of Hungarian society both Jewish and non-Jewish is convinced that antisemitism has increased in Hungary since the fall of communism. According to surveys conducted between 1993 and 2009, approximately 10–15% of Hungary's adult population is antisemitic, while a further 25% nurtures anti-Jewish prejudice to some degree. Antisemitism packaged in an anti-Zionist rhetoric was from time to time a part of government policy in various countries of the Soviet bloc. In recent years, many different surveys have been conducted on antisemitic prejudice in Europe. In 2002, the Anti-Defamation League arranged for surveys to be conducted in various countries. In 2006, the antisemitic segment of the population evidently consisted of two groups: a low-status group and a strongly nationalist group that was neither socially deprived nor strikingly anomic. The antisemitism of the extreme right, however, has still not been transformed into a political ideology.
