An academic survey in the east German state of Thuringia revealed that as many as one in six respondents agreed with the statement that Jews “do not belong among us.”

The study, carried out by the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, showed that 16 percent of respondents in Thuringia agreed with the statement that Jews were unwelcome aliens. In the previous year’s survey, just 8 percent of respondents agreed with the same assertion.

The university study also showed that 24 percent of Thuringia residents identified with right-wing extremist parties, such as the “Alternative for Germany”
