THE NEW YORK TIMES, October 19, 1945
* Nuremberg trials begin
* Hermann Goering - Rudolph Hess
* Loads of text & photos
The front page has a three column headline announcing the opening of the Nuremberg Trials: "BIG FOUR INDICT 24 TOP NAZIS FOR PLOTTING AGAINST PEACE; ATROCITIES IN WAR CHARGED" with subheads including: "Party Corps Listed" "Goering, Hess, 13 Others Accused on All four Counts in Bill" "Charges Based on Violations of Pacts & Conventions--Outrages Itemized". The report begins: "An indictment was presented today...to charge 24 of Germany's war leaders--all Nazi followers of Adolf Hitler--with participation in the bloodiest, blackest plot against peace & humanity that has ever stained history's pages...". Reporting continues on inside pages with related photos. Loads and loads of text here. Too much to mention all. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. 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.
