Anti-Semitism Among Hungarian College and University Students

By Andras Kovacs, Gyorgy Fischer

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1994

One thousand Hungarian students were interviewed in order to measure the intensity of antisemitic beliefs held by Hungarian college and university students. The results revealed that 25% of the students show antisemitic attitudes and 32% maintain some negative stereotypes about Jews. These results also had a strong correlation to the students' parents' level of education and social status. Furthermore, the study authors found that university students were less likely to be antisemitic than college students. The authors analyze the data and further examine the relationship between Jews and Hungarians.
