Jewish Holocaust becomes a public reality...Nazi atrocities...
Item # 627674
September 3, 1942
THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 3, 1942
* Jewish Holocaust being known for the 1st time
* Nazi-occupied Europe exterminations
* Terezin military fortress - Czech Republic
Page 5 has one column headings that include: "50,000 JEWS DYING IN NAZI FORTRESS" "'All Hope for Them Has Been Abandoned,' Says Spokesman for Czechs in London" and more. See images for coverage on the atrocities in Nazi-occupied Czech Republic. 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. I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
Other news, sports and and advertisements of the day with much more on World War II. Complete in 40 pages, 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.
