The Story of the Sarajevo Haggada
Keywords:Passover Haggada, Haggdot, Pesach, Sarajevo Haggada, Jewish books, Jewish illuminated manuscripts
The story of the rescue of Sarajevo's Haggada codex during the Second World War was put together first by checking archives and other reliable sources, and thereafter contrasting the findings with the legend itself. It appears that a fictional story has filled a gap in the historical record of the postwar years; the legend has protected persons involved in the salvation of the Haggada.
