The Malmömässan hosted the official opening of the exhibition about the history of Auschwitz, prepared by the Auschwitz Museum and the Spanish company Musealia. Malmö is the only city hosting the exhibition in Scandinavia.
The beginning of extermination at Auschwitz constituted the main theme of the 77th anniversary of liberation of the German Nazi concentration and extermination camp. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, only a small group of participants, mainly a dozen of survivors, gathered within the Memorial.
