1943: Hitler sentences 6,000,000 Jews to death

Joseph Hertz, the Zionist Chief Rabbi of the British Empire

On Tuesday, December 7, 1943, The Yorkshire Post and Leeds Mercury reported on a speech given by the British Empire's Chief Rabbi the previous day at the Metropole Hotel in Leeds; the newspaper paraphrased Hertz as having told his audience: 
"Hitler had pronounced a sentence of death on the 6,000,000 Jews of Europe. The Nazis had already murdered two millions by machine-gun and lethal chamber, by torture and hunger, and were now busy exterminating the third million."
