The first traditional English language hagadah published in Munich after the war. English and Hebrew in parallel columns. Includes 21 pages of photographs of Vaad Hatzalah on frontis and pages 65-84, showing Jewish Displaced Persons and and their supporters preparing for and enjoying Passover after liberation from the Nazis. Front wraps and verso photograph printed in blue ink, title page printed in green ink, rear photographs printed in blue ink. "a. Y. Ha-va'ad le-hotsa'at sefarim etsel Va'ad ha-hatslah, ha-Rav Naftali Barukh, ha-Rav Avi'ezer Burshtin" - title page. "Passover, 1948, marks the third Seder Service after the redemption from the bondage of the Nazi tyranny. “ (from page 1) . This illustrated hagadah seems to be for promotion of the Vaad Haztala's work to their supporters in the US and to help survivors to learn English, anticipating their eventual embarcation for the US, Palestine (soon Israel), or the British Commonwealth. The preface in English at the front of the book is addressed to "our American brethren, for their generous aid in assisting in the task of the spiritual and physical rehabilitation, the Sherith Hapleita extends its sincerest blessings and holiday greetings". Should not be confused with a similar 21-leaf haggadah issued the same year by the Vaad Hatzala in Munich which includes a Rabbinic commentary by Jacob Lisser ( from his book "Derech Chaim"), which is Yaari 2361, Yudlov 4092.
