Elon Musk, the tech billionaire and owner of X (formerly Twitter), visited the Auschwitz death camp following criticism of how the platform addresses antisemitic content.

Musk faced backlash for endorsing an antisemitic conspiracy theory, leading to major advertisers like Apple, Disney, and IBM pausing ads on X.

Musk’s visit to Auschwitz included laying a wreath, participating in a memorial service, and addressing online antisemitism at a conference by the European Jewish Association.

This comes amidst escalating concerns about rising antisemitism in Europe, with X previously facing criticism from the Auschwitz Memorial for not promptly removing a Holocaust denial post.

Musk has defended his stance against online hate, but the platform continues to grapple with moderation challenges.

The visit is seen as a significant move in the context of combating antisemitism and raising awareness about the Holocaust.
