The Scrolls of Fire describe Jewish martyrdom and the heroism of the people of Israel from the time of the Destruction of the Temple to the present day. This book is a complete reproduction, text and paintings, of the original oversized book which is part of the core exhibits in Beth Hatefutsoth: The Nahum Goldmann Museum of the Jewish Diaspora in Tel Aviv. Consists of 52 chapters of persecution and affliction, of standing firm, as author Abba Kovner termed it.

The chapters are meant to be read one a week throughout the year, much as the weekly portions of the Torah are read. Each chapter is no more than a few sentences, a short description of a situation.
