This text was prepared by William Gross:

Passover Haggadah in Hebrew and Hungarian, Illustrated by Istvבn Zבdor – Budapest, 1924 – Numbered Copy, Signed by the Artist Hagada, Magyarra fordította Hevesi Ferenc. Zádor István rajzaival (Passover Haggadah, translated into Hungarian by Dr. Efraim Hevesi, Rabbi of Kehal Adat Yeshurun, with illustrations by István Zádor). Budapest: Stemmer Ödön, sponsored by OMIKE, "the “Hungarian Jewish Educational Association", [1924]. Hebrew and Hungarian. A Haggadah, in Hebrew and Hungarian, illustrated by the Hungarian artist István Zádor (1882-1963). The text on each page is surrounded by an ornamented printed frame. The books contains 11 full-page illustrations and several text illustrations and initials. The publication of the Haggadah was sponsored by Omike, "the Hungarian Jewish Educational Association", which was founded in 1910 and was a mainstay of the Hungarian Jewish community in the areas of culture and education until 1944.

Hebrew publishing in Hungary in the period between the two World Wars presented some very beautiful graphics within some of the books. This is a profusely illustrated Haggadah with highly original drawings by Istvan Zador.The volume was sponsored by the Society for Jewish Culture in Hungary, and issued in a limited edition of 300 copies. The text is in Hebrew and Hungarian, translated by Dr. Ferene Hevesi, rabbi of the town of Szekes Fejérvár.
Each of the Haggadah’s pages is surrounded by a mauve border with stylized floral or Egyptian motifs. The title page is framed by grapevines and topped by a Magen David.
One of the novelties in the Zádor illustrations is the manner in which the Four Sons are depicted. In the Haggadahot of prior centuries the Sons had been differentiated by their dress or their gestures. Zádor, however, draws only their faces and relies upon their facial expressions to identify each of them. Each face appears on a different page. Also novel is Zádor’s rendering of “Pour Out thy Wrath”: the Jews here are shown with their Egyptian persecutors and raise their arms to invoke God’s retribution against the nations that have sought to destroy them.
Ya’ari 1977, Otzar 2924.
