Moshe Aryeh Friedman is a haredi rabbi[1] who spoke at the International Conference to Review the Global Vision of the Holocaust.

In 2006, Friedman participated in the International Conference to Review the Global Vision of the Holocaust, with his position that "I am not a denier of the Holocaust, but I think it is legitimate to cast doubt on some statistics."[2] He says that the figure of 6 million deaths during The Holocaust is from a prophecy made before World War II; and that the actual figure is closer to one million deaths.[3] His children were expelled from the Talmud Torah school they were attending in Austria, where the family lived.[4] He says it was because of his participation in the Holocaust conference; the school says its fees were not paid.[1]

After being banned from the Jewish community in Austria,[5][6] he moved to New York City.[7][8][9]

Because no schools in Antwerp, where he moved in 2011, would admit his children, he went to court and in 2012 won a case that ordered a Jewish school for girls to admit his two sons or face heavy fines.[8][9][10] In February 2013, the Court of Appeals reversed the trial court’s decision.[11]
