Non-traditional haggadah. Stencil print with illustrations. Current texts relating to the Holocaust of European Jewry, the silence of the nations and illegal immigration to the Land.

The haggadah opens with original texts relating to the bondage in Egypt. In one of them, there is a picture of Moshe in the image of a pioneer with a walking stick and an immigrant ship at sea. Later, there is an interesting passage relating to those killed in the Holocaust, in the style of the war with Amalek: 'If I raise my hands in faith Israel grows stronger, doubt spreads and I remove my hands and Amalek grows stronger ... piles upon piles are knocked down, corpses are killed and slaughtered, sons' and fathers' hearts are pierced, who will shed a tear over the flesh and blood upon the destruction of the daughter of my people ...' A passage appears later on relating to the ghettos: 'We see the seed of Avraham our father in all the ghettos into which they were rejected, all the disintegration of the nation, its contents liquidated and black death lying in wait for her ... the whole valley of the agony of massive death-throes ... the gentle souls go and rot from slavery and bondage, the poverty and the coarseness and the malice are poured by their governments on all ....'

There is also a sharp text about the silence of the world nations in the face of the destruction of European Jewry: 'And how will the nations continue to harden their hearts together to not see and not understand why we are tortured so and why we are scorned, and why malice rejoices to make us like mud in the street and our dignity like ashes' and more.
