On the 2 July, 2018, at the United Nation's Human Rights Council’s 38th session in Geneva, Hungary delivered a join statement condemning the growing threat of antisemitism.
Initiated by Hungary, the declaration was delivered on behalf of 25 co-sponsors including Albania, Austria, Australia, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Canada, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Honduras, Japan, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Malta, Moldova, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Ukraine and the United Kingdom.
The statement was supported by the Federation of Jewish Communities in Hungary and the World Jewish Congress, which also worked to initiate and promote the statement.
“Jewish communities are enduring growing threats manifested in hate speech, harassment, vandalism and physical violence in several regions,” said Hungarian Ambassador Zsuzsanna Horváth. “Incidents of antisemitic violence targeting Jewish or non-Jewish individuals, their property as well as educational facilities, cultural and religious heritage sites are seen as attacks on our core values and identity.”
