The examination is likely the first of its kind, the New York-based news service Jewish Telegraphic Agency said Monday, to ask Jews in 9 EU member states -- Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Romania, Sweden and the United Kingdom -- about their perceptions and experiences of anti-Semitism, hate speech and discrimination.
The online survey will "investigate first-hand examples of anti-Semitic harassment and violence, as well as the extent to which Jews feel safe and secure in Europe today," a statement from Iloannis Dimitrakopoulos, head of the EU Department of Equality and Citizens Rights, said.
Survey results will be published in 2013, the news agency reported.
