According to data collected by the monitoring program, one case of presumably antisemitic violent crime was recorded in 2016.

Since the beginning of systematic monitoring, the number of recorded victims of violent antisemitic attacks is as follows:

8 victims in 2004, 13 in 2005, 8 in 2006, 8 in 2007, 5 in 2008, 1 in 2009, 1 in 2010, none in 2011, 4 in 2012 (three incidents), 4 in 2014, also 4 in 2014 and 1 in 2015.

As can be seen, the number of violent antisemitic crimes peaked in 2005, and a notable decline has set in since 2007. In recent years, the number of such incidents remains at a stable low.

Besides quantity, 2005-2007 was also the time when the most dangerous, life-threatening street attacks took place.
