How many admorim died in the Holocaust?

  • I'd imagine there are historians out there who track how many Hassidic grand rabbis there were in Eastern Europe ... hm ... I'm sure a lot of them were far lesser-known.

There's a book (in Hebrew) dedicated to this topic (אדמו"רים שניספו בשואה - מאת מנשה אונגר). If you have access to Otzar HaChochma, the full book is available online here:

Plus a wiki listing here of over 120 rabbis who perished in the Holocaust (some of whom are rebbes/Admorim).

And a small photo gallery here dedicated to the subject.
