Prague - A new study by Prague’s Jewish Community says that anti-Semitism in the Czech Republic has not risen over the last year and remains at a relatively low level.

The annual report on anti-Semitism released Thursday notes that unlike in the Czech Republic, anti-Semitism is on the rise in other parts of the world.

It notes a swastika painted on a Holocaust memorial and another one on a synagogue, a physical attack on a Jew, and several verbal attacks and threats in the Czech Republic in 2011.

In total, the report compiles five attacks against Jewish property, four threats, seven Websites attacking Jews and 19 ant-Semitic articles in the media.

Czech police recorded 16 anti-Semitic offenses in 2011.

I was in Buchenwald with Czech prisoners and they were the elite. Czechoslovkia had a man named Masaryk its first President who was a defender of a Yid accused in a blood libel. Czechs parachuted from their safety in England into Prague and killed the biggest murderer of Jews Reinhard Heydrich. On the 10th of November 1938 in Vienna I found safety ina non-Jewish neighbors apartment from Hitler Youth rampage. There are no finer people than the Czech. May G'd bless the Czechs

I'm not surprised at all at this. The Czechs are very nice people and have a history of civilized behavior.
