Elon Musk’s solemn visit to Auschwitz concentration camp

Just days before Tesla’s Q4 and FY 2023 earnings call, Musk visited Poland to attend a symposium organized by the European Jewish Association (EJA) on the rise of antisemitism.
During his visit, Musk laid a wreath at the Death Wall memorial, a location that saw the execution of thousands of Jewish prisoners under the hands of Nazi soldiers. In a comment to the Rabbi Menachem Margolin, Musk’s visit was noted as quite important.
Today, Elon Musk visited Auschwitz in Poland to draw attention to antisemitism. He participated in a ceremony to honor the 1.1 million Jewish lives lost at the camp, laying a wreath in their memory.
According to Rabbi Menachem Margolin, the visit was very important as Auschwitz-Birkenau represents the dangers of hatred and ignorance. He stated that anyone who has influence should ensure that the entire world is committed to combating antisemitism and any form of racism and hatred.
While Musk’s presence typically incites a lot of media coverage, the media’s presence during the CEO’s visit to the concentration camp was actually quite small. Margolin stated that the CEO paid respect to the over one million people who were exterminated at the camp by visiting key locations like the execution wall, gas chambers, and crematorium.
Following his visit to Auschwitz, the Tesla CEO is expected to make a personal statement on online hate speech at the EJA’s symposium. Musk is expected to be joined onstage by Jewish conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, a vocal supporter of Musk’s antisemitism stance.
Musk later met with Israel President Isaac Herzog and the families of hostages currently being held by Hamas.
