Adam Stein is a holocaust survivor, a former circus clown spared the Nazi’s gas chambers so that he might entertain thousands of other Jews as they marched to their deaths. He now finds himself the ringleader of a group of patients at an asylum in Israel’s Negev desert populated solely by Holocaust survivors.

More brilliant than the doctors and more insane than any of the other patients, Adam struggles wildly to make sense of a world in which the line between sanity and madness has been irreversibly blurred. Full of humanity, pathos, and biting irony, Adam Resurrected offers a vision of a modern hell that devastates even as it inches toward redemption.
