"This modest Passover Seder plate tells a powerful story: on one side, a scene from Egyptian slavery and on the other, a hopeful representation of Jerusalem. Linking the illustrations are two Hebrew quotations, "From Slavery to Freedom" and "This Year in Jerusalem." The traditional saying recited at the end of the Seder "Next Year in Jerusalem" is pulled into the present. The Seder plate was manufactured for Jewish refugees in the postwar Displaced Persons Camps. It powerfully expresses the pressing desire for a better future after the horrors of the Holocaust."
