    About "Primo Levi"

      • Primo Levi

        Primo Michele Levi Italian pri mo l vi 31 July 1919 11 April 1987 was an Italian chemist and writer He was the author of several books, novels, collections of short stories, essays, and poems His best known works include If This Is a Man 1947 , his account of the year he spent as a prisoner in the Auschwitz extermination camp in Nazi occupied Poland and his unique work, The Periodic Table 1975 , linked to qualities of the elements, which the Royal Institution of Great Britain named the best science book ever written.The Jews were rounded up for deportation to eastern concentration and death camps On 21 February 1944, the inmates of the camp were transported in twelve cramped cattle trucks to Monowitz, one of the three main camps in the Auschwitz concentration camp complex Levi s record number was 174,517 He spent eleven months there before the camp was liberated by the Red Army on 18 January 1945 Of the 650 Italian Jews in his transport, Levi was one of twenty who left the camps alive The average life expectancy of a new entrant at the camp was three months.Shortly before the camp was liberated by the Red Army, he fell ill with scarlet fever and was placed in the camp s sanatorium On 18 January 1945, the SS hurriedly evacuated the camp as the Red Army approached, forcing all but the gravely ill on a long death march to a site further from the front.Although liberated on 27 January 1945, Levi did not reach Turin until 19 October 1945 After spending some time in a Soviet camp for former concentration camp inmates, as a result of the Armistice between Italy and Allied armed forces, he embarked on an arduous journey home in the company of former pre 1946 Italian prisoners of war from the Royal Italian Army in Russia His long railway journey home to Turin took him on a circuitous route from Poland, through Belarus, Ukraine, Romania, Hungary, Austria, and Germany In later writing, he noted the millions of displaced people on the roads and trains throughout Europe in that period.In the Academy Award winning 2003 film by Denys Arcand, Les Invasions Barbares The Barbarian Invasions , the main character expresses outrage at the apparent apathy of the Roman Catholic Church during World War II toward the Holocaust Pius XII sitting on his ass in his gilded Vatican, while Primo Levi was taken to Auschwitz It s despicable Hideous In another scene the same character wishes that he had written The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and Levi s The Periodic Table Later in the film, a French edition of If This Is A Man Si c est un homme is prominently shown on the same character s bookshelf.Christopher Hitchens book The Portable Atheist, a collection of extracts of atheist texts, is dedicated to the memory of Levi, who had the moral fortitude to refuse false consolation even while enduring the selection process in Auschwitz The dedication quotes Levi in The Drowned and the Saved, asserting, I too entered the Lager as a nonbeliever, and as a nonbeliever I was liberated and have lived to this day The Primo Levi Center was named after the author.In the Warehouse 13 episode No Pain, No Gain, Primo Levi s scarf is featured as an artifact The wearer gains deep insight and intellect Side effects may include prolific bouts of writing and intense thought provocation.David Blaine has Primo Levi s concentration camp number, 174517, from Auschwitz tattooed on his left forearm.More enpedia wiki Primo_Levi

    1. “However this war may end, we have won the war against you. None of you will be left to bear witness, but even if someone were to survive, the world would not believe him. There will be perhaps suspicions, discussions, research by historians, but there will be no certainties, because we will destroy the evidence together with you. And even if some proof should remain and some of you survive, people will say that the events you describe are too monstrous to be believed – they will say they ar [...]


    2. It is hard for me to translate my experience of this book to words. It's not that my feelings are ambiguous, or even that I can't find the right words; my problem is that it created such an emotional and intellectual response from me, that I'm finding it difficult to know where to start, or how much of it really belongs in a review.This is actually two books in one: "If This is a Man" recounts Primo Levi's experience of entering and living on one of the Auschwitz concentration camps, and "The Tr [...]


    3. The Idolatry of PowerLevi reports a recurrent dream that he and many others had in the camp: He is at home among close family and friends to whom he is speaking about his life in the camp; but no one is listening. A realisation perhaps that his experiences, the intensity of his suffering, are not merely inhuman but ultimately uncommunicable or at best inexpressible. No one who hasn't been present could appreciate the extent of loss of oneself, the reduction of a person to a consciousness of utte [...]


    4. This pair of books are the Italian Primo Levi's autobiographical account of his time in the Auschwitz complex of camps in If this is a Man which was written soon after his return to Italy. It is as harrowing as The Truce, covering his liberation and roundabout return to Italy, is cheering. That journey undertaken at a time when Europe was covered in refuges and displaced persons. First task - find shoes you can walk in, second task - find a market.Completely captivating and heart wrenching writi [...]



    5. This book is beyond any possible rating. It is, I believe, the book that says the definitive word about holocaust and about human cruelty. After this, nothing else can be said and no explanation can be given to what men can do to other men.


    6. Philip Roth called this "One of the century's truly necessary books". Primo Levi's description of surviving in the arbeitlager at Auschwitz-Buna is the story of human tenacity and the determination to find a way to survive in the face of incomprehensible and overwhelming odds. Reading this book and books such as Fateles by Imres Kerstz give an incomparable picture of the atrocities commited in Germany and Poland by the Nazis. These activities were facilitated in part by a Europe which couldn't o [...]


    7. Διάβασα μόνο το "If this is a man/Εάν αυτό είναι ο ανθρωπος". Το βρήκα εξαιρετικό. Γραμμένο με σκοπό να ενημερώσει, να μιλήσει στον αναγνώστη για την ζωή στο στρατόπεδο συγκέντρωσης και όχι για να σοκάρει και να κερδίσει την συμπάθεια μας. Η γραφή είναι πολύ καλή, βρισκεις συχνά λυρι [...]


    8. If I could I would make this book required reading for everyone over 18. It's not that long and it's not that depressing. Levi recounts events that must not be forgotten, but he does so with a spirit and humanity that I have never found in other prisoner of war type stories.


    9. This isn't really a book that can be rated. However, since that's how we catalogue our books here on Good Reads, I'm giving it 4 stars - not 5, but just because I wouldn't want to read it again and I can't honestly say it's one of my favourite ever books. Otherwise it's 10 stars. I was going to start this review with quotes from the book. However, after telling my Mother how good it was when she called round this afternoon, she appears to have left with it. I text her that its like living in Aus [...]


    10. Impressive recount of a Jewish prisoner's days in Auschwitz and his journey home. I liked the dry, observant style. The author does not show hate for his tortures, just describes the facts. The reader is the judge.The passage which made the biggest impression on me is where Levi talks about the camp musicians, playing the same songs everyday when the slaves go out to and come back from work. Levi writes that even years later, hearing these innocent songs made the blood freeze in the bodies of th [...]


    11. This book includes the two books Survival in Auschwitz and The Reawakening by Primo Levi. The American and European publications have employed different titles. The book ends with an excellent "Afterword". This too is written by the author. I recommend this edition.This book is quite different from other holocaust books, by its very lack of emotion. It is a clear statement of what exactly happened to the author, both in the camp (If This is a Man) and afterwards on his travels home to Turin, Ita [...]


    12. Reading this epic-like memoir, his first-hand accounts as one of the prisoners-of-war detained in a camp at Auschwitz as a legacy of World War II by Primo Levi was stunningly descriptive, inhumane and hopeful. My background reading was that I nearly finished reading its first part, "If This is a Man," depicting his arrest in late 1943 and his life along the ruthless route to the notorious camp at Auschwitz where he survived because the authority there needed his expertise as a chemist. Then I qu [...]


    13. Ne pas chercher à comprendreQuanto è avvenuto non si può comprendere, non si deve comprendere, perché comprendere è quasi giustificare… Ma se comprendere è impossibile, conoscere è necessario.Non trovo parole adeguate per esprimere il mio commento a questa testimonianza di Primo Levi. Colpisce la razionalità di questo grande Uomo, che non indugia in giudizi e accuse, non usa toni recriminatori né accattivanti, non cerca pathos. Non è necessario. Applica il semplice metodo scientifico [...]



    14. I was bought this as a Christmas present from a friend and was told simply: "No one should go on without heaving read this book". Now, I've read a few books on concentration camps (and have also visited Auschwitz and Birkenau in Poland) and wasn't convinced that another account of this atrocity should be on my 'to read' list.I did, however, give it a go and I'm so glad I did. From start to finish Primo kept me drawn in by his fantastic use of language and the way he can put a very human face to [...]


    15. This is a powerful story of Primo Levi who was imprisoned in Auschwitz. I’m giving it 3 stars, since I felt that his writing style was confusing and tedious. I believe that this is the first holocaust account that I have read that has been written from an objective, rather detached and unemotional point of view, or at least the first that I can remember. I know that if I had gone through all those horrors, there is no way in God’s green earth that I could have felt the same way. No way. Some [...]


    16. The second or third or fourth time I have read it. One of the most important works of the 20th century. Still stunned by how people keep on going, in the face of a bottomless abyss. Exhilarating, inspirational, full of an unfathomable spirit.


    17. Due colossali opere racchiuse in un unico libro che altro non è che la sconvolgente e struggente testimonianza, raccontata in prima persona, del ritorno a casa di Primo Levi (e del suo peregrinare in giro per l'Europa) dai campi di concentramento nazisti. Bisogna leggerlo per capire (almeno in parte e per quanto possibile) come può un uomo privato di tutto, anche e soprattutto della sua dignità, riuscire a perdonare i suoi carnefici e a fare ogni sforzo affinché non venga dimenticato ciò ch [...]


    18. I read this book as an undergraduate in 1992, and in those days had the luxury of suiting myself timewise I started in the morning and read through the day: I don't think I moved from my sagging armchair until it was too dark to read, and I had to get another loo roll for soaking up the copious weeping. Nearly twenty years on, the narrative still haunts me: it's every bit as breathtaking in translation as in the original, which is truly rare. This is a desert island book that I would never leave [...]


    19. How could this be anything but harrowing? And yet the author has survived, kept some portion of humanity about him, the tiniest shred. Necessary.


    20. This book is one of the best books I’ve read so far, and every day you just want to get more and more involved with Levi. As he said, this book is not only a way of stating the atrocities committed by the nazis in the WWII but also to show us the life in the Lager and how to survive, or not, in it. And the most interesting part is something that I’ve not seen so far in books about concentration camps… He tells us about how people, when faced with such difficulties, become animals. First yo [...]


    21. How can I even think that I can pass judgement on this in a literary sense? It would be wrong.Quite simply the rawest and most moving book I have ever - and probably will ever - read. Not just because of the personal experiences that Primo describes, but also for the inconceivable way in which he rises above the inconceivable evil.The end of the books contains a list of the questions he was often asked after writing the book and his answer that he doesn't hate Germans because that is the root of [...]


    22. After having read the book a couple of times, it is still difficult for me to translate into words my experience. I tried in English, in Spanish, in Catalan. I just couldn't do it, no matter how much effort I put on the fact of writing. Words didn't come to me. The only thing I was only able to do was to jot down a couple of phrases: Raw. Terrifying. Harrowing. Heart-breaking. Inspirational. Full of resilience. A chant to the beauty of life. A must-read for anybody over 18.


    23. Survival in Auschwitz; And, the Reawakening: Two Memoirs (Auschwitz Trilogy #1-2), Primo Levi, Stuart J. Woolf (Translator)


    24. [Only read the first of the two books in this double-up]Primo Levi's path through the camp system, and his perspective on it, seem set apart from most other accounts (Elie Wiesel for example) owing to his knowledge, which made him more valuable (in purely economic terms) to the system that used up labour as a prelude to destroying the labourers. It's interesting to compare and contrast, noticing how each survivor's account tells us a little more about the central crime of the twentieth century.


    25. Каквото съм споделил за „Периодичната система“, важи дори в още по-голяма степен за „Нима това е човек/Примирието“. Майстор на словото е Примо Леви, тъкач на емоции, летописец на ужасното. Но все пак, въпреки жигосания завинаги лагерен номер на плътта му, който за две годин [...]


    26. 4.5/5'Hier ist kein warum' (there is no why here)It was a naïve hope, like all those that rest on too sharp a division between good and evil, between past and future, but it was on this that we were living.For reasons obvious to those who have been paying attention, I've been focusing more on Jewish people in my reading than I had been previously. This particular dearth in the past has everything to do with my continued fumbling through the biases of my appetites when it comes to the written wo [...]


    27. Не трябваше да бързам да се отделям толкова бързо от книгата, защото все още погледът ми е премрежен от горчивите сълзи от последните страници, главата ми е замаяна от тази Одисея през немислимото; от умението на Примо Леви да разказва и да ангажира читателя – не с изгаряща [...]
