At its peak, the organization had over 25, 000 members and was generally accepted as the umbrella Zionist organization of Germany. Its activities were halted in 1937. (Wikipedia, 2016) This haggadah may have been sent to Jewish soldiers on the frontline, given its publication date. The text appears in two columns, one in German and one in Hebrew.
