|In this major historical discovery, "Auschwitz Report" represents Levi's first yet still astonishingly lucid attempts to come to terms with the raw horror of events that would drive him to create some of the greatest works of 20th-century literature.|
From the Publisher:
A new edition of the author's long-forgotten first published work, which originally appeared in 1946, offers Levi's initial account of the horrors of the holocaust as it describes the deportation to Auschwitz, everyday life in the camp, the selection of inmates for work or extermination, and more.A new edition of the author's long-forgotten first published work, which originally appeared in 1946, offers Levi's initial account of the horrors of the holocaust as it describes the deportation to Auschwitz, everyday life in the camp, the selection of inmates for work or extermination, and more.
Primo Levi was an Auschwitz survivor who wrote obsessively--and brilliantly--about his experiences. Trained as a chemist, Levi was also a mountaineer and, in the 1940s, a dedicated antifascist. After his liberation from Auschwitz, Levi made an arduous trek back to his home in Italy (later chronicled in THE TRUCE). After the war, he continued to work as a chemist and to write; his first work, IF THIS IS A MAN (released in the U.S. as SURVIVAL IN AUSCHWITZ), was received with indifference, but he persevered, and gradually acquired an enormous literary reputation. He declined into depression, however, fearful that the moral lessons of the Holocaust would be ignored or forgotten. When a friend suggested that Levi's survival was a blessing from providence, Levi was appalled at the idea, because so many good people had perished. Despondent and unable to write well, he apparently committed suicide in 1987 by throwing himself down a flight of stairs--though there is controversy about whether it was suicide or a tragic accident. Levi was at work on an epistolary novel when he died.
