Item # 625730
September 11, 1944
THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 11, 1944
* Jewish Holocaust becoming reality to the public - Mary Berg diary
* Nazi-occupied Warsaw Ghetto, Poland exterminations
* Allies liberate Luxembourg
Page 5 has a one column heading: "Slayings In Warsaw Depicted By Witness" See image for coverage on the atrocities in Nazi-occupied Poland. 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. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Also a banner headline on the front page: "AMERICANS SHELL REICH, ENTER LUXEMBOURG"
Other news, sports and and advertisements of the day with much more 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. Very nice condition.
