New date for the Malmö International Forum on Holocaust Remembrance and Combating Antisemitism

Published

The Malmö International Forum on Holocaust Remembrance and Combating Antisemitism will take place in Malmö on 13–14 October 2021. The Forum has been postponed one year due to the unfortunate circumstances of the current pandemic.

In January 2020 Prime Minister Stefan Löfven extended an invitation to heads of state and government, researchers, experts and civil society representatives from around 50 countries to participate in the Malmö International Forum on Holocaust Remembrance and Combating Antisemitism in October 2020. Due to the unfortunate circumstances of the current pandemic the Forum was postponed one year and will take place in Malmö on 13–14 October 2021 instead. Recent developments have made it evident that the work on Holocaust remembrance and combating antisemitism and other forms of racism is as important as ever and must be strengthened. The purpose of the Forum is to jointly take concrete steps forward in the work on Holocaust remembrance and the fight against antisemitism.
