No, not because of the Holocaust or an upsurge in Neo-Nazism but because of a hot plate. Seven orthodox Jewish children were killed in an apartment fire caused by a hot plate.  The hot plate being used to keep food warm during the Sabbath caught fire. Being that the fire happened on the Sabbath and orthodox Jews are not allowed to turn on stoves or ovens during the Sabbath the plate was kept on and could not be turned off least the Sabbath be violated.

Least we think religious idiocy is limited to Jews I am reminded of the fact that Church of Christ churches are not allowed to have music in their churches as these modern instruments did not exist during the time of Christ and are hence not biblical. And yet they drive to church in vehicles that did not exist in Biblical times either. Or the Jehovah Witness religion who believe only 144,000 people are going to go to Heaven and yet their religion has members way in access of 144,000.
