Item # 660524
July 27, 1943
THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 27, 1943
* Jewish Holocaust being known for the 1st time
* Nazi-occupied Poland exterminations
* Benito Mussolini ousted
The top of the page 9 has one column headings: "POLISH EXECUTIONS PUT AT 3,200.000" "Wiadyslaw Banaczyk Draws Gruesome Picture of Nazis' Extermination Methods", "Children Kicked To Death" and "Minister Details Gassing of Adults--Sees Reich Aim at Ethnographic Defense Line". See image 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.
Other news, sports and and advertisements of the day. Complete with all 36 pages, light toning at the margins, nice condition.
