Ceremonies are taking place in different Swedish cities marking this as the international day commemorating the victims of the Nazi concentration camps of World War II.

In Stockholm, one ceremony is taking place at the downtown square honouring the still-missing Swedish diplomat, Raul Wallenberg, who saved thousands of Hungarian Jews in Nazi-occupied Budapest. He was taken prisoner by Soviet troops entering the city and disappeared in the Soviet prison system.

The date marks the 66th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi death camp Auschwitz in Poland.

Meanwhile, the number of hate crimes against Jews has diminished in Sweden over the last year – compared to a large increase the year before.

Hate crimes against those with foreign backgrounds and homosexuals have increased.
