Gliński's address at the International Forum on Holocaust Remembrance and the Fight Against Anti-Semitism  will focus on the implementation of strategies to combat anti-Semitism and to ensure protection to minorities, including victims of anti-Semitism and other forms of racism and intolerance, officials have told reporters.

Gliński, who also serves as a Polish deputy prime minister, will join high-ranking politicians, experts and civic society representatives from around 50 countries for the conference in Malmö.

Among those expected to attend the event are Sweden's King Gustaf and Queen Silvia, the Swedish prime minister, the president of Israel, the chairman of the World Jewish Congress, and the president of the European Commission.

Gliński on Tuesday opened his visit to Sweden with a wreath-laying ceremony at the Norra Kyrkogården Cemetery in the town of Lund.

The cemetery contains the graves of 24 Poles, former inmates of German concentration camps. Evacuated to Sweden by the Swedish Red Cross, they died there of disease and exhaustion.

A memorial in their honour has been founded by Ludwika Broel-Plater, a former prisoner of the Nazi German Ravensbrück concentration camp.

Gliński also visited the Polish Institute at the Library of Lund University, whose collection comprises over 500 written testimonies of former German concentration camp prisoners.
