An agenda for the event shows Musk scheduled to appear at a symposium in Krakow for a discussion Monday with conservative commentator Ben Shapiro. Participants are scheduled to visit Auschwitz on Tuesday.
Shapiro has appeared publicly before with Musk on the subject of antisemitism. In a largely sympathetic Sept. 28 discussion broadcast on X, Musk said he went to a Hebrew preschool in South Africa and described himself as “aspirationally Jewish.”
Musk recently has faced criticism over the spread of antisemitic content on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, which Musk purchased and took private in 2022. The Anti-Defamation League reported that antisemitic content surged more than 900 percent on X in the weeks after the Israel-Gaza conflict erupted Oct. 7, with Musk using his own account to amplify antisemitic tropes. The White House criticized him for “abhorrent promotion of Antisemitic and racist hate,” while a number of major advertisers fled the platform.
Musk threatened to sue the Anti-Defamation League over the report. But he has also embarked on a series of media appearances in which he rebuked the Hamas militants for murdering innocent civilians. He toured a kibbutz with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in late November and shown a video documenting atrocities against Jews on Oct. 7.
Musk did not immediately respond to an email request for comment Thursday.
