We use a haggadah every Pesach. The first haggadda was written about 1100 years ago. Since then, thousands of haggadot have been written and published. They were written and illustrated in medieval Europe and Spain; in Renaissance Italy; through the Industrial Revolution, Communist Russia, and the Holocaust. This presentation will trace the political and realities of the lives of Jews from throughout history, illustrated with pictures and illustrations from ancient and modern haggadot.
