By Hans Kaiser. “ The book is not intended to make a contribution to the history of the origins of the most important festival in the country, but rather its concern is very current, one might almost say existential. The book was published as a ‘first-time Celebration and Spring Festival of the Remnants of Israel in Europe.’
It is a collection of contributions by Jewish scholars, philosophers and poets to the understanding of Jewish Passover celebrations….
It should be clear that the remnants of Israel, having barely woken up from the terrible night, needed a groundbreaking word during this terrible decade of their history, and even had a right to one” (Hans Kaiser, in his review of the book in the first issue of the post-war German journal, “Die Welt des Orients” in 1947). The US Holocaust Museum keeps their copy in their Rare Books collection.
