Item # 631648
September 18, 1945
THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 18, 1945
* Jewish Holocaust coming to light
* Nazi-occupied Europe exterminations
* Josef Kramer "The Beast of Belsen" trial
Near the bottom of the front page is a two column heading: "SS Killed 4,000,000 at Oswiecim, Prosecutor Says at Kramer Trial" Coverage continues inside with photo of Kramer. 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 throughout with much on World War II. Complete in 40 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.
