Jewish Holocaust... public reality... Nazi atrocities...
Item # 648471
March 23, 1943
THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 23, 1943
* Jewish Holocaust becoming reality to the public
* Rovno, Eastern Poland prison camp massacre
Page 6 has a brief article headed: "Whole Population Of Prison Executed" "Germans Retaliate for Attempted Break Fatal to Two Guards" (see) Rare to find such reports in newspapers at this time as the reality of the holocaust was just being known. What better evidence to confirm of what really happened then having a 1st hand account from the day it was first reported. 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 and advertisements of the day with much more on World War II. Complete in 38 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.
