1942: 6,000,000 condemned Jews in the Royal Albert Hall

The Chief Rabbi of the British Empire, the Hungarian-born Joseph Hertz, informed a Leeds audience in December 1943 that "Hitler had pronounced a sentence of death on the 6,000,000 Jews of Europe"; in November 1942 he claimed Germans used 500 Jewish babies as footballs and praised the Soviets for outlawing antisemitism, and in March 1945 he effectively barred Jews from marrying Christians.
On Tuesday, November 3, 1942, Chief Rabbi Hertz, before the "predominantly Jewish" audience congregated in the Royal Albert Hall: "spoke with prophetic fire in the name of the six million Jews of Europe on whom sentence of death had been pronounced by Hitler."
