Shalom Sabar at the Library of Congress: The Washington Haggadah and The Szyk Haggadah.
This video is a portion of the documentary film, “In Every Generation: Remaking The Szyk Haggadah (Historicana and JKR Productions, 2008), directed by Emmy-nominated Jim Ruxin.
Drawn and first published during the rise of Hitler, the Passover Haggadah of Polish-Jewish artist Arthur Szyk (1894-1951) is a triumphant and enduring work of hope and courage, and the supreme expression of one artist’s love for his people and his heritage. The luxury limited edition of The Szyk Haggadah, limited to only 300 copies, is a landmark of Jewish art and culture.
