Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1943, Primo Levi, a twenty-five-year-old chemist and Italian citizen of Jewish race, was arrested by Italian fascists and deported from his native Turin to Auschwitz. Survival in Auschwitz is Levi's classic account of his ten months in the German death camp, a harrowing story of systematic cruelty and miraculous endurance. Remarkable for its simplicity, restraint, compassion, and even wit, Survival in Auschwitz remains a lasting testament to the indestructibility of the human spirit. Included in this new edition is an illuminating conversation between Philip Roth and Primo Levi never before published in book form.

Review:

"Survival in Auschwitz is a stark prose poem on the deepest sufferings of man told without self-pity, but with a muted passion and intensity, an occasional cry of anguish, which makes it one of the most remarkable documents I have ever read." New Statesmen

About the Author

Levi was born in Italy and trained as a chemist. He is retired from his position as manager of a Turin chemical factory.

Sometimes there is a subject that can not and should not be over written. Levi's story is unique as is the story of every concentration camp survivor. As a teacher of World History, this entire era is one that needs to be written about and discussed forever. The world cannot forget.
