THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 26, 1942
* Jewish Holocaust being known for the 1st time
* Nazi-occupied Europe exterminations
* Lezaky, Czech Republic razed to the ground
This 38 page newspaper has one column headlines on page 5: "GERMANS WIPE OUT A 2D CZECH TOWN", "All Men and Women Are Killed at Levsaky--Others Put to Death in Country", "Many Sent to Have Been Sent Out of Slovakia--Massacre of Poles Is Revealed" 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 margin wear, otherwise in good condition.
