A Grim Historical Front Page Of New York Times


newyorktimes frontpage

Apart from usual publishing, New York Times created a front page on Sunday May 24, 2020, mentioning only the names (with their ages and 1 or 2 word intros) of the 1% coronavirus victims who died in USA without the usual images and graphics that NYT carries on a daily basis;

The headline reads;

“US DEATHS NEAR 100,000, AN INCALCULABLE LOSS”

While the sub-heading reads;

“They Were Not Simply Names on a List, They Were Us.”

Aubrey Hirsch copied the front page 100 times on a single page only to show 100,000 names of Coronavirus victims. You may not be able to read them since she did it only to show the enormity of this tragedy;
