A New York-based haredi Orthodox rabbi who has posted thousands of renouned overdo lectures online pronounced usually about 1 million Jews died in a Holocaust rather than a historically determined figure of 6 million.
Rabbi Yosef Mizrachi in a video posted Tuesday on his YouTube channel cited high acclimatization rates in Europe before World War II to make his explain that 80 percent of those identified as Jews killed by a Nazis during a Holocaust were not Jewish according to halachah, or Jewish law.
“If we demeanour during a percent of acclimatization that there was in Europe, that already reached 80 percent, it’s reasonable to assume that 80 percent of a 6 million were not Jews,” pronounced Mizrachi, who teaches during a yeshiva in Monsey.
“The law is that not even 1 million Jews were killed. Not that this is, God forbid, an considerate number, it’s massive, though there is a disproportion between 1 million and 6 million.”
