Visionary Venture philanthropist Brock Pierce has taken part in a series of notable events in Krakow, Poland, ahead of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, marked on January 27. It reaffirmed his commitment to Holocaust education and the fight against antisemitism.

Pierce began his series of engagements by participating in the European Jewish Association (EJA) delegation to Auschwitz, where he paid homage to the victims of the Holocaust. Lighting a candle in their honor at the Birkenau memorial, Pierce underscored the importance of remembering and learning from this tragic chapter in human history: 

“As we witness the heartbreaking events in Israel and mourn the loss of Jewish lives, our commitment in Krakow becomes even more critical,” said Pierce. “The phrase ‘Never Again’ resonates with a renewed urgency, transcending beyond a mere slogan to a solemn vow to protect the Jewish people and all communities from the horrors of hate and violence. This poignant moment in history is a stark reminder of our duty to foster a world where peace and tolerance reign over animosity and persecution,” 

Conversing with former Israeli President Reuven Rivlin on the sidelines of the EJA conference on antisemitism.

Pierce also attended a live conversation on the issue of online antisemitism between billionaire Elon Musk, the owner of X, the social media platform formally known as Twitter, and conservative commentator Ben Shapiro. 

“When it comes to hate, silence is our greatest risk,” said Pierce. “I commend Musk for speaking truth to power.” 

Pierce is available for interviews about his experience and his views on the concerning rise of antisemitism. Please call Noy Assraf Azran +1 917-982-6331 or email noy@nsacreatives.com.
