This chapter presents the key arguments and conclusions on antisemitism in Poland, as well as on 'Polish antisemitism', looking at a survey conducted in Poland in 2012. It compares the results from the latest survey in 2012 with the earlier surveys. Some circumstances have changed. Most obvious is the significant drop in the percentage of antisemitic attitudes, while rejection of antisemitic stereotypes has grown even more significantly. Of course, due to the rather unexpected turn of events in Poland after the presidential and parliamentary elections of 2015, a new rise in antisemitic convictions is to be feared. Recently there have been some investigations which have illustrated the growth of antisemitic attitudes, most notably by the Center for Research on Prejudice, Faculty of Psychology, University of Warsaw. Some of the survey's most interesting results were concerned with age. It is impossible to attribute changes in attitude solely to age; however, the youngest respondents in each survey were, on the whole, the least inclined to antisemitism, but acquired antisemitic attitudes with age, especially of modern antisemitism. At the same time they picked up nationalist convictions.
