Chapter Summary

Many people were surprised and worried by the antisemitic discourse that emerged after the collapse of communism. This chapter presents the in-depth examination of antisemitism in Hungary since World War II. The most important aims of the chapter were to gain an impression of the extent, content, strength, and influence of antisemitic prejudice, to reveal the structure of antisemitic ideology and the social characteristics of antisemitic groups, and to draw conclusions, based on the data gathered, about the dynamics of anti-Jewish prejudice and the potential for the development of political antisemitism. In 1994, Hungarian researchers studied the relationship between prejudice and authoritarianism in post-communist Hungary. The past decade has seen the emergence of a type of antisemitism in the public arena that is often referred to as new antisemitism. In Hungary the relationship between old and new antisemitism functions differently than in Western countries.
