Item # 684437

November 08, 1945

THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 8, 1945

* Anti-Jewish riots - massacre - pogrom
* Tripoli, British Tripolitania
* Libyan Jews- North Africa

The front page has a one column heading: "74 TRIPOLITAN JEWS SLAIN IN ARAB RIOTS" with subhead. (see) First report coverage on the 1945 Anti-Jewish riots in Tripolitania. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisement of the day. Complete in 36 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.
