Item # 631669
September 27, 1945
THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 27, 1945
* Female SS guard Irma Grese
* Bergen-Belsen concentration camp trial
* Jewish Holocaust - exterminations - atrocities
Page 12 has a one column heading: "BELSEN TORTURES BY WOMAN LISTED" with subhead. (see) 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 advertisements of the day. Complete in 42 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.
