Product Description

Review

Levi writes of unspeakable things with charity, clarity and objectivity (SUNDAY TIMES)

Levi's work is a model of patience and hard-won enlightenment, a search for illumination in places where there appeared to be none. (DAILY TELEGRAPH)

It is, as always, an intellectual and aesthetic pleasure to follow the perfection of style, the manner of exposition, both subtle and lucid. (OBSERVER)

The horror of what he reveals is made all the more terrifying by a prose style which is cool, clear and unsparing. The most powerful message to emerge from this book is that we must learn the lessons of history so as not to repeat its mistakes. (YORKSHIRE POST)

Book Description

*Levi's examination of what it meant to have survived the Holocaust.

About the Author

Primo Levi was born in Turin in 1919 and trained as a chemist. Arrested as a member of the anti-fascist resistance during the war, he was deported to Auschwitz. His experiences there are described in his two classic autobiographical works, IF THIS IS A MAN and THE TRUCE.
