Primo Levi

–          Primo Levi (July 31, 1919 – April 11, 1987)

–          Survival in Auschwitz

In 1943, Primo Levi, a 21year old chemist and Italian citizen of Jewish descent was arrested by Italian fascists and deported from his native Turin to Auschwitz. Survival in Auschwitz is Levi’s classic account of his 10 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.
