The New York times covers the Holocaust : all the news that's fit to print? / by Roy Vinci Wadia

Publication | Library Call Number: D804.7.P63 W33 1989

This study determines how and why the New York Times covered the Holocaust the way it did. A qualitative, historical approach was used to study Times' articles on Jewish persecution in Nazi Germany from 1938 to 1945, including the coverage of the Nuremberg Trails. The Germany Files of Times publisher Arthur Hays Sulzberger were studied for reasons as to the Times' German Jewish news coverage policy. Results obtained indicate the Times ultimately failed to determine the true newsworthiness of Jewish persecution, and downplayed Holocaust news to an extreme, thereby failing in its duty as a major vehicle of foreign news.
