Jewish holocaust in 1939.....

Item # 626303

November 06, 1939

THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 6, 1939

* Jewish holocaust
* Nazi atrocities
* Early in World War II Europe

Page 7 has one column headings that include: "JEWS SAID TO FACE FAMINE IN POLAND" "1,500,000 in the German-Held Areas Are Reported to Have Been Condemned to Starve" "Flight To Soviet Barred" and more. (see) Coverage on the increasing hardships of the Jewish communities in Nazi occupied Poland and Germany. (see) 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 advertisements of the day. Complete in 40 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. Very nice condition.
