Romania: Priest denies Holocaust

With thanks to RCA Romania (the Center for Monitoring and Combating Antisemitism In Romania).

A clip recently uploaded to YouTube shows Father Andrei Lehaci, a priest in Timisoara (western Romania), talking in class against gypsies and Jews.

Regarding Jews, Lehaci told his students that they shouldn't listen to those saying that Ion Antonescu killed Jews.  According to Wikipedia: "A common assessment ranks Antonescu's Romania as second only to Nazi Germany in its antisemitic extermination policies".

Church officials say that the video is from 7-8 years ago, when Lehaci temporarily served as a teacher.  Following the appearance of the clip, Lehaci was removed from his position as parish priest, but will continue to serve in the Church.
