The August 27, 1943 edition of the pro-communist NYC newspaper PM Daily provided some surprisingly in-depth details of the 5,021,500 Jews that were missing from Europe. PM states that of the 8,300,000 European Jewish population in 1939, there had been a "Gross Loss" of "5,021,500". Of this "Gross Loss" a total of "3,030,500 are stated as dead, whilst the remaining 1,991,000 are not specifically accounted for in the article, which does make brief mention of:
"The destruction of the Jews has been by planned starvation, forced labor, deportation, pogroms and methodical murder in Nazi extermination centers. It has been achieved also by the slow processes of degradation, humiliation and economic strangulation." (emphasis added)
