Number of anti-Semitic hate crimes in Hungary eases

In Hungary, unlike the rest of Europe, the number of anti-Semitic hate crimes fell in 2018, according to an annual report released by the Tett es Védelem foundation on Friday.

Fully 32 anti-Semitic hate crimes took place last year, four less than in 2017. In 2016, there were 48 such cases, 52 in 2015 and 37 in 2014.

Of the cases in 2018, three were physical attacks, ten acts of vandalism and 19 hate speech incidents. In all the cases, the perpetrators were men and none of the cases were organised, according to the report.

The rise in the number of anti-Semitic hate crimes in 2018 was significantly higher in the two largest Jewish communities in Europe, in Great Britain and France, the report notes.

The foundation has released its annual report based on methodology suggested by the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe.
