The latest figures are “the tip of the iceberg” according to Christian advocacy charity Open Doors.
Some 743 Christians and 10 Yazidis were the victims of religious motivated attacks between February and September 2016, with some of victims aged five to 12 years old.
Migrant centres in Germany must do more to protect Christians from the attacks with are said to “occur frequently and nationwide” at the hands of some Muslims in the camps.
The documented cases confirm that the situation of Christian refugees in German refugee shelters is still unbearable
According to the report, 91 per cent of Christians and Yazidis surveyed accused Muslim migrants of carrying out the violent attacks, with 28 per cent accusing camp guards.
Open Doors estimates the actual number of attacks could be in the thousands with just 17 per cent of those surveyed reporting the crimes to police.
Many did not report the attacks to the authorities out of fear.
Christians are said to have suffered sexual assaults, violence and death threats in camps across Germany.
More than one million migrants have arrived in Germany since last year.
The report found: “The documented cases confirm that the situation of Christian refugees in German refugee shelters is still unbearable.
“As a minority they are discriminated against, beaten up by and receive death threats from Muslim refugees and partly by the Muslim staff-securities, interpreters, volunteers- on grounds of their religion.”
Of the 743 attacks, 42 per cent experienced death threats, 83 per cent underwent multiple assaults and 6 per cent were sexually assaulted.
The report found: “The highest risk in participating in the survey was taken by the converts from Islam to Christianity, according to the Koran their change of faith is considered as a crime worthy of the death penalty, therefore they are explicitly in danger.”
Open Doors has called on Angela Merkel’s government to do more to protect Christian refugees
It comes just five months after an Open Doors study found more than 80 per cent of Christian refugees in Germany feel abandoned with a huge majority suffering attacks, abuse or other forms of harassment in reception centres since arriving in the country between February and April 2016.
