Malmö International Forum on Holocaust Remembrance and Combating Anti-Semitism


The Malmö International Forum on Holocaust Remembrance and Combating Anti-Semitism (Malmö Forum) is taking place this week on October 13th. 
On Wednesday 13 October, Sweden is to host Remember ReAct, the Malmö International Forum on Holocaust Remembrance and Combating Antisemitism. Ahead of the Forum, participating delegations have been asked to commit to concrete actions and present them at the Forum. The conference was originally due to take place in October 2020 to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War and liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the 20th anniversary of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust, and the establishment of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA). After delays due to Covid-19, it was postponed and is now taking place on October 13th, 2021.
The themes of the conference are: “Promoting remembrance, fighting distortion”, “Developing education and reaching new target groups”, “Countering contemporary anti-Semitism and other forms of racism online and offline”, “Implementing strategies and ensuring security”, “Combating anti-Semitism and hate speech on social media” and “Preserving testimonies and developing education for the future”.
On the 13th, sessions include a plenary session on the consequences of the diminishing number of survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust, the Roma genocide and the persecution of different groups during the Holocaust, breakout sessions covering the different themes of the forum, and a plenary session focussing on action on anti-Semitism, the implentation of the forum’s pledges, and how to join forces to strengthen the work for Holocaust remembrance and combating anti-Semitism and other forms of racism.
Delegates from around 50 different countries were invited, including heads of state and government, researchers, experts and civil society representatives.
Albania has continuously joined the international community efforts in the fight against anti-Semitism and all forms of discrimination.  The Albanian government is praised for its initiatives taken in the fight against anti-Semitism, such as the adoption in the Parliament of the Republic of Albania of resolution against anti-Semitism and the adoption of IHRA definition for Holocaust remembrance, as wel as for including in school curricula Holocaust related issues. For these reasons, as well as for the protection of Jews during Shoah, Albania has been declared a "House of Life" by the Raoul Wallenberg Foundation.
