Item # 625663
June 27, 1942
THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 27, 1942
* Jewish Holocaust being known for the 1st time
* Nazi-occupied Europe exterminations
Page 5 has one column headings that include: "BIG REWARDS PAID IN HEYDRICH CASE", "Two Czechs Get 5,000,000 Crowns Each for Leading Police to Slayers", "More Executed in Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia and Poland--Jews' Toll 700,000" 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 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 with much on World War II. Complete in 28 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. Nice condition.
