Passover Seder Plate Symbols

Passover begins this evening. Last year, I was at a seder where this question was posed: “if you could put anything on the seder plate, what would it be?” I decided then that I would remember my Oma’s first act of freedom by locating a button from a WWII Canadian soldier’s uniform and placing it on the seder plate. I don’ know if the button I purchased on eBay is the real thing. But as a symbol, it is the real thing to me.

What symbolizes freedom to you?

Irene Stern Frielich regularly speaks about her father’s Holocaust survival experience and how she unraveled his story. She is a periodic blogger covering topics such as Holocaust and WWII history, current events, memory, and hope. She is also the owner of an award-winning instructional design consulting firm in Sharon, Massachusetts. Irene is deeply grateful to the eighteen courageous individuals who helped her family survive the Holocaust. She carries their legacy forward through her book and through her acclaimed multimedia presentations.
