Synopsis

If the "Sarajevo Haggadah" could speak, what extraordinary stories it would tell. It has traveled through countries and centuries, where it has been used, threatened, and rescued by people of different cultures and religions. It now rests in the National Museum in Sarajevo, Bosnia. Geraldine Brooks has created a distinctive story recounting the chronicle of this very special book. Come along with "Bookclub-in-a-Box" and find out more about the people of the book: those who created it, owned it, and were influenced by it. The book is a physical and symbolic symbol of survival and freedom for Hannah, for the Jewish people, and for the citizens of Sarajevo. Included in this guide is historical information on the siege of Sarajevo, which lasted from 1992 to 1996. Every "Bookclub-in-a-Box" discussion guide also includes complete coverage of the themes and symbols, writing style, and interesting background information on the novel and the author.
