Jewish Holocaust... public reality... Nazi atrocities...
Item # 625491
June 16, 1942
THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 16, 1942
* Jewish Holocaust becoming reality to the public
* Nazi-occupied extermination of Jews
* Vilna Ghetto - Vilnius Lithuania
Page 6 has one column headings: "VILNA MASSACRE OF JEWS REPORTED" "60,000 Slain in Two Weeks by Police Under Nazis, Polish Refugee in Sweden Says" and more. See images 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 known. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication. 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 advertisements of the day. Complete in 42 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Minor creasing and a little spine residue from disbinding, otherwise in very nice condition.
