THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 1, 1942
* Jewish Holocaust exposed
* Nazi-occupied Poland exterminations
This 70+ page Sunday newspaper has one column headlines on page 28: "EXTINCTION FEARED BY JEWS IN POLAND", "Dr. Henry Shoskes Says Reports From "Underground" Tell of Systematic Nazi Campaign", "Hunger, Disease Strike" and "Death Rate in Ghettos So High, Complete Disaster Is Seen Within Next 5 Years". 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.
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 throughout with much on World War II. Minor margin wear, otherwise in nice condition.
