Presents an ultra-Orthodox commentary on the traditional Passover Haggadah. On the basis of frequent comparisons between the suffering of the Children of Israel in Egypt under Pharoah and the persecution of the Jews under Hitler, deals with questions of religious faith. Finds models of heroism among the Jews in Egypt, who in their courage and spiritual autonomy showed all future generations, including those during the Holocaust, how to resist physical and spiritual oppression. Includes inspiring accounts of Jewish resistance, such as the Warsaw ghetto uprising that began on Passover. Referring to the Haggadah text, stresses an archetypal, recurring antisemitism "in every generation." Expresses the view that God will help the Jewish people survive and will ultimately redeem them. Includes the text of the Haggadah with an English translation. (From the Bibliography of the Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism)
