This gift set includes three separate items. The first is an exact reproduction of The New York Times from the day that Israel declared its independence. The remaining items are compilation newspapers, meaning they include various newspaper pages that when combined, tell the chronological story of either The Holocaust or the State of Israel. For example, the first page of the Holocaust compilation is a reprint from January 30, 1933, and its headline reads "Hitler Appointed Chancellor." The final page, from October 1, 1946 covers the sentencing of twelve of Hitler's top men to death.
Retrographics is a dream come true for all kinds of history and sports buffs. As the licensee of The New York Times, the company publishes newspaper compilations from the greatest moments in sports history. These compilations and original memorabilia offer a nostalgic and fascinating look at our American past.
