Adam’s Purim Party [מסיבת הפורים של אדם]


Holocaust survivors invite their relatives to a Purim party, where the survivors put on a play abut the miraculous survival of Jews in Ancient Persia; at the same time, they present stories of their camp experiences and their survival. Adam, one of the survivors, and who was a clown before the war, survived because he willingly served as the commandant’s dog.
