Current Austrian Attitudes Toward Jews and the Holocaust

By Renae Cohen, Jennifer L. Golub

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1995

In 1991, an extensive survey was conducted of Austrian citizens in order to understand the attitudes of Austrians towards Jews and the Holocaust. The results were later compared to a similar survey given to Austrians in 1995. The comparison showed that between 1991 and 1995, hostility toward Jews decreased and there was an improved orientation toward remembrance of the Holocaust. However, one out of four Austrians still maintains hostility toward Jews, while a larger amount of Austrians remain disinterested in any sort of remembrance of the Holocaust.
