A look at Passover during the years of the Holocaust
Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day falls on April 24, a week after the end of Passover.
This year, Yad Vashem – The World Holocaust Remembrance Center created an online photo exhibit commemorating the celebration of the significant spring holiday before, during and after the Holocaust.
Called “And You Shall Tell Your Children,” the online exhibit is a collection of photographs and Passover artifacts, showing how Jews during the period of the Holocaust maintained their identities and observed the holiday.
The photographs and video testimony show European Jews baking matzah and celebrating the seders in their homes before the war, in the ghetto, and in displaced persons camps following the war.
