Eric Weinstein

Managing director, Thiel Capital

Eric Weinstein is an American managing director of Thiel Capital, Peter Thiel's investment firm, a position he has held since 2015. An active commentator on Twitter, Weinstein shared a moving story about his family’s experiences in Nazi-occupied Europe in a poignant thread about “Jewish privilege.” Said Weinstein, “First cousin froze to death escaping Babi Yar… My cousins were a Mengele twin experiment.” He concluded that the word “privilege makes me laugh… Every person who has Jews they know and love knows the truth: we are always simply between pogroms.” (Photo: Wikimedia / Creative Commons License)
