SCHLESISCHE TAGESZEITUNG, September 11, 1935 The title translates to "Selesian Daily Newspaper". Note the Nazi swastika in the masthead.
Selesia was region of central Europe mostly in present-day Poland. Polish Silesia was among the first regions invaded during Germany's 1939 attack on Poland. One of the claimed goals of Nazi occupation, particularly in Upper Silesia, was the extermination of those who Nazis viewed as subhuman, namely Jews and ethnic Poles.
A 14-page newspaper, 12 1/4 by 18 1/2 inches, cleanly cut at the spine, totally in the German language, nice condition.
