Item # 637380
July 2, 1942
THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 2, 1942
* Jewish Holocaust being known for the 1st time
* Nazi-occupied Poland exterminations
Page 6 has one column headings: "ALLIES ARE URGED TO EXECUTE NAZIS" "Report on Slaughter of Jews in Poland Asks Like Treatment for Germans" "Curb On Reich Sought", "'Only Way to Save Millions From Certain Destruction,' Says the Appeal" See photos for coverage on the ongoing atrocities in Nazi-occupied Poland where extermination of the Jewish population was most prevalent. 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. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this famous New York City publication.
Other news, sports and and various advertisements of the day with much more on World War II. Complete in 44 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. Minor spine wear, nice condition.
