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.

One of the strongest and most powerful books on the Holocaust, a priceless historical document, and a devastating book focused on a simple, terrible philosophical question. As the original title asks: Is this a man?Featured in my Top 5 20th Century Italian Novels: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yn6D...

Declaration of humanity by presenting the inhuman, from Primo Levi to us, the rest of the world. We owe it to them. It's our duty to care, to listen, to remember.

On a parfois l'impression qu'il émane de l'histoire et de la vie une loi féroce que l'on pourrait énoncer ainsi : "Il sera donné à celui qui possède, il sera pris à celui qui n'a rien."

Heel sterke getuigenis, die mooi in beeld brengt wat het eigenlijk is om een mens te zijn wanneer de wereld om je heen wegvalt.
