Jewish Holocaust... public reality... Nazi atrocities...
Item # 665308
March 21, 1943
THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 21, 1943
* Jewish Holocaust being known for the 1st time
* Nazi-occupied Poland murders - Ghettos
Page 10 has one column headings: "JEWS OF 5 TOWNS KILLED IN POLAND" "35,000 Persons Reported Slain In German Liquidation of Cities' Ghettos" 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. I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not. What better evidence to confirm of what really happened then having a 1st hand account from the day it was first reported.
Other news of the day with much on World War II. Complete 1st section only with all 30 pages, light toning at the margins, nice condition.
