Photograph | Photograph Number: N01206.00

Green glazed earthenware Passover seder plate made by Jewish DPs in the Föhrenwald displaced persons camp.

Engraved on the rim of the plate is a scene of slave laborers being forced to work by a master in the shadow of a pyramid and a group of buildings representing historic Jerusalem. The Hebrew text on one side of the decorative motif reads: "From Slavery to Freedom," and on the other: "This Year in Jerusalem". Inside another decorative motif are the Hebrew and English words "JOINT" and "Religious Office". Stamped on the back is the Hebrew term "Sheerit ha-Pletah" [Surviving Remnant] and the English, "Employment Board".

This seder plate was given to U.S. Army chaplain Rabbi Nathan Abramowitz by Jewish DPs at the Föhrenwald displaced persons camp.
