Jews required to wear the Star of David in Nazi Germany...
Item # 625887
September 7, 1941
THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 7, 1941
* The Yellow Star "Star of David" badge
* Jewish Holocaust takes a drastic turn (1st report)
* Jude - Jews - Judaica
The top of page 14 has a very significant Judaica item concerning their treatment by the Nazis under Hitler's rule, the one column headings includes: "NAZIS ORDER JEWS OVER SIX LABELED" "All Above That Age Must Wear the Star of David, Secret Police Chief Rules" "Other New Restrictions" "None May Leave Areas in Reich in Which They Reside Without Official Permission" The article is datelined at Berlin and begins: "All Jews over 6 years of age were ordered...to wear a large yellow star of David with the black superscription 'Jew'...that Jews would not be permitted to leave the area in which they resided...Jews must not wear any orders or decorations..." with other particulars (see). A very notable issue and perhaps the first report of the requirement to wear the Star of David on their clothing. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much on World War II. Complete 1st section only with all 52 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.
