Study finds antisemitism is on the rise in Austria
A research study conducted by the Institute for Empirical Social Research and commissioned by the Austrian parliament has found that antisemitism is on the rise in the country, with 15 per cent of respondents showing severe antisemitic attitudes such as denying the Holocaust. More than a third of respondents believed that Jews tried to “take advantage” of the Nazi era and that they have “too much power in international business”. Austrian governments have continuously tried to address the issue due to the country’s Nazi past as an integral part of the Third Reich.
