JNS.org Anti-Semitism in Hungary is high but declining, according to a new survey whose findings were presented at a memorial ceremony in Budapest for the Hungarian Jews killed in Nazi death camps 70 years ago.

Some 17 percent of Hungary’s population was identified as being anti-Semitic, said the study conducted by TEV, an organization that combats anti-Semitism in Hungary. About 23 percent were identified as being “moderately” anti-Semitic.

Despite the relatively high incidence of anti-Semitic attitudes and the increasing strength of Hungary’s far-right Jobbik party—whose leaders have often denigrated Jews and Israel in speeches—the level of anti-Semitism in the country has declined since 2010.
