Yad Vashem Chairman Dani Dayan is in Malmö, Sweden to take part in the Malmö International Forum on Holocaust Remembrance and Combatting Antisemitism. Dayan will address the conference tomorrow at a session entitled "Preserving Testimonies and Developing Education for the Future."
“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Prime Minister Stefan Löfven of Sweden for initiating this timely and vital conference," stated Yad Vashem Chairman Dani Dayan. "Against the backdrop of the alarming rise in antisemitism worldwide, the Malmö Forum provides an important international platform to raise global awareness of the need for Holocaust remembrance as well as an opportunity for government officials and the world community to join forces in the fight against this destructive and age-old phenomenon. It is Yad Vashem's mission to ensure that the voices of the victims and the testimonies of the survivors will remain accessible and relevant today and for future generations. Together with international partnerships, alliances and coalitions, these fundamental tools can help us push antisemitism back to the margins of our global society."
