Item # 589852
December 20, 1942
THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 20, 1942
* Jewish Holocaust being known for the 1st time
* Nazi-occupied Europe exterminations
This 70+ page Sunday newspaper has one column headlines on page 23: "ALLIES DESCRIBE OUTRAGES ON JEWS", "United Nations Office Here Releases Report on Fate of 5,000,000 in Europe", "Extermination Is Feared"
"Situation in Each Country Held by Germans Is Analyzed in Summarized Form". See photos for coverage on the ongoing atrocities in Nazi-occupied Europe. Rare to find such reports in newspapers at this time as the reality of the holocaust was just being realized.
What better evidence to confirm of what really happened then having a 1st hand account from the day it was first reported.
Other news, sports and and advertisements of the day throughout with much on World War II. Rag edition in very nice condition.
