THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 4, 1942
* Jewish Holocaust being known for the 1st time
* Nazi-occupied Poland exterminations
Page 11 has one column headings: "Two-Thirds Of Jews In Poland Held Slain" "Only 1,250,000 Said to Survive of 3,500,000 Once There" 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 advertisements of the day with much on World War II. Complete in 46 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.
