Item # 589876
May 24, 1942
THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 24, 1942
* Jewish Holocaust being known for the 1st time
* Nazi-occupied Europe exterminations
This 80+ page Sunday newspaper has one column headings on page 5: "NAZIS' EXECUTIONS PUT AT 97 IN WEEK", "10 Slain in Paris Over Attack on German Officer Are Most Recent Additions to Toll", "Firing Squads Take Victims From Low Countries to the Balkans" and more. 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. Minor spine wear, otherwise nice condition.
