Passover Haggada. Jewish Transport Unit 468, soldiers in the Royal Army. Italy [1945].

Non-traditional haggada, copied by stencil, illustrations.

The haggada opens with a preface regarding the historic significance of the Passover holiday. It includes unique prayers relating to the Holocaust ["My tongue is too short to express the horror...to carry and to suffer every misfortune and disgrace..."] Following a few of the traditional passages, there is a special illustrated title page with title: "Masechet Yameinu" - a very sharp section formatted as a play with characters and narration sections relating to the Holocaust, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and the immigration to Palestine. "Come and go to the city of the murder and come to the courtyards and see with your eyes and with your hands feel the gates....the congealed blood and the hardened brains of the victims....the blood of our sons that were spread and our elderly that were slaughtered with the cry of the martyred Shema Yisrael....and they are killed still today! Cities of Germany don't cover the Jewish blood that you spilled!....Communities in Poland don't cover the graves of tens of thousands! Romania - the altar of the sacrific....France that was buried alive - and my nation in a trap you smashed! Holland the land of freedom, how you were hurt! ...Beligum ...Norway, Bulgaria, Greece...Hungary... Thousands of volunteers for their homeland, hundreds of thousands of Jewish soldiers in the allied armies are carrying with them tot he battlefields to take revenge and on the fields of Europe soaked with blood, wander the remants of the nation that fled the Nazi sword..." and more.

Rare Haggada. Not in the National Library.
