Persecution of the Jews following Kristallnacht...
Item # 625953
November 15, 1938
THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 15, 1938
* Post Crystal Night (Kristallnacht)
* Persecution of Jews continues
* Ousted from having education
The front page has a four column headline: "WASHINGTON CALLS ENVOY FROM BERLIN; CHAMBERLAIN PLANS TO ASK ROOSEVELT TO JOIN IN MOVEMENT TO RESCUE JEWS" with subheads that include: "Reich Ousts Jews From Colleges; Forbids Them to Sell Their Stocks" and more. Coverage on the ongoing persecution of Jews shortly after Kristallnacht (night of broken glass). Lengthy text. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 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.
