Item # 686335
November 28, 1942
THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 28, 1942
* Jewish Holocaust being known for the 1st time
* Nazi-occupied Poland exterminations
Page 7 has one column headings: "POLAND IN APPEAL ON NAZI OUTRAGES" "Her Parliamentary Council at London Calls to the World Against Massacres" "Underground Aids Jews", "Finance Minister Strausburger, on Visit Here, Says Germans' Killings Total 1,400,000" See images 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 with much more on World War II. Complete with all 28 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. Nice condition.
