Investment in a new Swedish-Jewish museum


It is proposed that the Jewish Museum in Stockholm receive a contribution of SEK 1.5 million in 2016 for the establishment of a new Swedish-Jewish museum. This is proposed in the Government Bill ‘Spring Amending Budget for 2016’ following an agreement with the Left Party.

The new museum will focus on Swedish-Jewish history and highlight questions about the conditions of integration. The Government considers that the State should contribute funds for this initiative so as to promote dialogue and opportunities for learning.
