Share21 November 2019About one quarter of the European population has "clearly negative attitudes towards Jews", notes a new global survey on anti-Semitism carried out by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).
The anti-Semitic sentiments are essentially confirmed at the same level as four years ago in the countries of Western Europe. But the survey commissioned by the Jewish Association that militates against anti-Semitism shows a growth in the negative attitude towards Jews in Central and Eastern Europe, an area where anti-Semitism has deep historical roots: Poland (+ 11%), Ukraine ( + 14%), Russia (+ 8%). Also in Hungary it grows.
Italy reports instead an improvement (-11% of declared anti-Semitic sentiments), as well as Austria (-8%) and to a lesser extent Canada (-6%). But as far as Italy is concerned, a turnaround has been recorded in the last year, with 190 cases of anti-Semitism in nine months.
The survey was conducted between April and June 2019.
