Jewish population in Europe decimated by Hitler....

Item # 687608

February 17, 1945

THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 17, 1945

* The Jewish Holocaust summary
* Dr. Joseph Schwartz's estimation
* Adolph Hitler's Final Solution

Page 8 has a interesting report concerning the outcome of the Jewish Holocaust near the end of World War II with a two column heading: "Schwartz Says Only 1,500,000 Jews Are Left In Europe as Result of German Murders" (see) Dr. Joseph Schwartz estimates that only about 25% of the Jewish population had survived Adolph Hitler's Final Solution order. He also believes that 0% had survived in Germany itself. Uncommon to find such reports in period newspapers, especially before the conclusion of the war in Europe.
