THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 21, 1943
* Jewish Holocaust being known for the 1st time
* Nazi-occupied Poland exterminations - Ghettos
This 60+ page Sunday newspaper has one column headlines on page 10 that include: "JEWS OF 5 TOWNS KILLED IN POLAND" and "35,000 Persons Reported Slain In German Liquidation of Cities' Ghettos". See photos for coverage on the ongoing atrocities in Nazi-occupied Poland where extermination of the Jewish population was most prevalent. 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. Minor margin wear, otherwise in nice condition.
