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, Remember ReAct. The purpose of the Forum is to jointly take concrete steps forward in the work on Holocaust remembrance and the fight against antisemitism.

The Forum was to take place in October 2020, 75 years after the end of the Second World War and the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. The year 2020 also marked 20 years since the first Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust, and the establishment of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA). Due to the unfortunate circumstances of the current pandemic the Prime Minister has announced that the Malmö Forum has been postponed one year. The invitation still stands and the Forum will take place in Malmö on 13 October 2021.
