Pogrom? - Racy books

Mobius @ Jewschool starts up some talk by calling the following scene from (last?) Pesach a pogrom. Frankly, I have no idea what's going on here. A little context would help out a lot.

Occasional commentor Dan Rabinowitz has a really neat post on racy title pages in sifre kodesh (religious books). His second post on the topic deals with the Haggadah. Anyone familiar with the text of the Haggadah can easily guess which biblical quote prompts the illustrator to depict a naked woman. (Yehezkel 16:7)
