The 75-year-old vowed to help the anti-racism organization “end the hate”.

He said: “I am witnessing the rubble of a country broken by the Nazis.

“I saw firsthand this hatred spiraling out of control and I share these painful memories with the world in hopes of preventing future tragedies and educating soldiers about personal responsibility.”

“I stand behind the Auschwitz Jewish Center Foundation and their educational mission to ensure NEVER AGAIN.”

Schwarzenegger ended his tour by writing “I’ll be back” in the guest book, and the museum’s official Twitter account shared a picture of it online.

Arnie’s message quickly divided opinion.

“I’m glad he visited and wrote in the book, but I had to think twice about the message,” wrote one user.

“I’m sure he meant it in the nicest possible way and having been there I know it’s difficult to find the right words, but I’m not sure if those were the best ‘ added another.

“Not sure the tone was entirely appropriate,” wrote a third, while a fourth said it was “tacky” and “funky”.

The Auschwitz Museum stepped in to defend Schwarzenegger and attempted to clarify his comment.

“This visit was planned to be relatively short. The inscription should be a promise to return for another and more thorough visit,” they wrote.

It comes after an ex-world boxing champion sparked a huge backlash after posting a beaming selfie with his girlfriend during a visit to Auschwitz.

Former British IBF champion Jamie McDonnell, 35, was blasted for taking the pictures with his girlfriend on a “beautiful trip” to the memorial, which preserves the site of the former concentration and death camp.

The now-deleted images show him grinning at the camera while visiting the memorial that preserves the site of the former concentration and extermination camp where 1.1 million people were murdered.

His “tone deaf” post caused a huge public outcry, with one asking him if he knew it was a “concentration camp and not Disneyland.”
