Arthur Szyk and the Art of the Haggadah
The haggadah, the ritual text for the Passover seder, evokes the story of the exodus of the ancient Hebrews from slavery in Egypt. Arthur Szyk (1894–1951), a Polish Jew keenly aware of current events, fused his two passions—art and history—into a visual commentary on the striking parallels between the Passover narrative and the alarming developments unfolding in Nazi Germany in the 1930s.
