THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 4, 1942
* Jewish Holocaust being known for the 1st time
* Nazi-occupied Poland exterminations
This 46 page newspaper has one column headings on page 11: "Two-Thirds Of Jews In Poland Held Slain" and "Only 1,250,000 Said to Survive of 3,500,000 Once There" 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 various advertisements of the day throughout with much on World War II. Rag edition in nice condition.
