Item # 639175
December 11, 1942
THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 11, 1942
* Jewish Holocaust being known for the 1st time
* Nazi-occupied Poland exterminations
Page 8 has one column headings: "POLES ASK ALLIES TO HALT SLAUGHTER", "Report Germans Have Slain One-Third of 3,130,000 Jewish Population", "End Of Nation Is Feared", and "Note Charges Extermination of Entire Polish People Is Nazis' Objective" 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 World famous publication.
Other news, sports and and advertisements of the day with much on World War II. Complete in 48 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. Very nice condition.
