Item # 623580
May 10, 1944
THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 10, 1944
* Jewish Holocaust becoming reality to the public
* Nazi-occupied Hungary exterminations
Page 5 has one column headings: "JEWS IN HUNGARY FEAR ANNIHILATION" "Gas-Chamber 'Baths' on Nazi Model Reported Prepared by Puppet Regime" See photos for coverage on the atrocities in Nazi-occupied Hungary. Rare to find such reports in newspapers at this time as the reality of the holocaust was just being known. 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 more on World War II. Complete in 36 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on a very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy for many years into the future. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primarily subscribers at the time, very nice condition.
