A non-traditional Haggadah in stencil print with simple illustrations.

The Haggadah begins with songs about spring and original reading excerpts alongside traditional texts. The nation's suffering over hundreds of years is mentioned: "We were slaves in every generation and in every place, scattered among the nations, decaying in the depths of the diaspora, enslaved for centuries upon centuries throughout the world. We did not find rest and our lives hung in the balance. The hooligans among the nations arose to destroy us and they defiled our world...".

There are a number of verses which begin with the word "Eicha" and mention the Holocaust: "How [Eicha] were we abandoned by people and God, how were we murdered throughout the world...", a memorial prayer for the victims of the Holocaust: "May man remember the dismembered corpses on the sides of the roads and the body of an old man cast aside, wild and stabbed, and amputated sculls in puddles of brothers' blood...".

There is also an interesting text based on The Four Sons - "There are four aspects of the Jewish People's redemption from Egypt" - which combines the revival of the Land. Paragraphs to strengthen those gathered from the various exiles and more.

On page 20 is a large illustration of illegal immigrants.

A rare Haggadah - not listed in the Steiner list and does not appear in the National Library.
