About Author:

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



Comments Se questo è un uomo

  • João Coelho

    Levi ensinou-me que as histórias do Holocausto terminam sempre com perguntas. E, sim, é bárbaro escrever Poesia depois de Auschwitz; mas vejam: é possível! Costumo pegar neste excerto e dizer ao mundo o quanto gostava de ter sido eu a escrevê-lo:“E veio a noite, e foi uma noite tal, que se sabe que olhos humanos não deveriam assistir e sobreviver. Todos sentiram isso: nenhum dos guardas, quer italianos, quer alemães, teve a coragem de vir ver que coisas fazem os homens quando sabem que [...]

    ITALIANO / ENGLISH (If This Is a Man)Ero quattordicenne quando lessi Se questo è un uomo: unico libro tra quelli letti per dovere scolastico ad essermi piaciuto anche allora. Mi colpì molto, mi impressionò, era la prima volta che venivo a conoscenza di un'esperienza diretta di chi ha vissuto in prima persona la realtà dei campi di concentramento.Primo Levi racconta l'esperienza vissuta dal momento della sua cattura, l'insediamento nel campo di concentramento di Auschwitz, la vita quotidiana, [...]

    This book is said to be one of the most important books ever written about Holocaust. What I am referring here are not the history books but the first-hand experiences written and narrated by the people who were there when the Holocaust happened. Since I read a handful of these, I can't disagree. I even think that, in some aspects, this could be the MOST important of them all.You see, Anne Frank wrote her diaryat 13 while hiding in her house with her family so she was not able to include her har [...]

    "Only an animal worries all the time about the next meal."- Naguib MahfouzThe desperation of the quote arising out of the idea that poor forced to live meal-to-meal might not be able to enjoy a human life can be found in Levi's memoir too. It's title coming from the poem that begins:"You who live safe In your warm houses, You who find, returning in the evening, Hot food and friendly faces: Consider if this is a man Who works in the mud Who does not know peace Who fights for a scrap of bread Who [...]

    It's hard to say anything about this magnificent book that hasn't been said many times before, so I won't even try but just write a note on why I have an abiding sadness when I think of the author.Primo Levi lived all his life in the house of his birth in Turin, Italy apart from when he was in the concentration camp. Luckily he lived, just, through that awful, murderous year, and to all intents and purposes resumed the life of a chemist and author that the Nazis interrupted. He wrote The Periodi [...]

    I will try not to overstate my feelings on this book. I believe this is one of (if not THE) most important book ever written. Everyone should read this book. It details Levi's journey from his home in Turin to Buchenwald. It is absolutely beautifully written. Levi's style of writing is unlike any other I've read. It is detailed, incredibly intelligent, moving, poignant, and in some way almost detached from his experience, which makes reading about it all the more moving and painful. To hear him [...]


  • Giannis

    Το βιβλίο αυτό αποτελεί μια εξαιρετικά «αντικειμενική» ματιά για τον τρόπο λειτουργίας των στρατοπέδων συγκέντρωσης. Ο Levi αν και ήταν μέσα στο στρατόπεδο για πάνω από ένα χρόνο, κατάφερε να συγγράψει ένα έργο απαλλαγμένο από «παθιασμένο» λόγο. Είναι σχεδόν εκνευριστικό τ [...]

    "Here there is no why."Primo Levi was an Italian Jew who came to live in very troubled times. Born and raised in Turin, he was subjected to the fascist racial laws which discriminated against Jews and made finding employment very difficult; after the German occupation of Italy began, he joined the resistance movement but was quickly caught and transferred to an internment camp. When the camp itself came under German control, the authorities started arranging mass deportations of captured Jews to [...]

    There have been so many reviews written on Primo Levi’s “Survival in Auschwitz” that I have very little to add. It has been said many a time that “Survival in Auschwitz” (original title “If This is a Man”) IS THE BEST OF ALL HOLOCAUST MEMOIRS, and it may very well be. Primo Levi not only tells about his horrific experience, he also adds psychological and philosophical reflections, which make this Holocaust memoir unique. I would like to endorse the following review:/review/showI fo [...]


  • Caroline

    This book is perhaps easier to read than one might imagine.Primo Levi, aged 25, was attached to a resistance group in Italy. He had recently graduated from Turin University as a chemist, and he was Jewish.He was captured by German forces in 1944, and deported. And from then on followed a year of hell in Auschwitz.Levi writes beautifully, but with a cool voice, so the reader is able to stand slightly back from the horrendous experiences that he describes. Not everyone is the same in the camp. Not [...]

    English review to follow "In den Himmel schauen und dabei denken, dass ich ihn vielleicht zum letzten Mal sehe."Sein Name ist 174 517. So wird der 24jährige Doktor der Chemie 1944 getauft. Wenn er seinen Namen nicht schnell genug sagt, gibt es Ohrfeigen und Faustschläge. Wenn er ihn bei der Essensausgabe nicht herzeigt, gibt es kein Stück Brot und keine dünne Rübensuppe. Er wird diesen Namen auf dem linken Arm bis zu seinem Freitod tragen. Vor dem Transport nach Auschwitz-Monowitz fragt der [...]


  • Χρήστος

    Η πιο σεμνή και ουσιαστική καταγραφή της φρίκης του Ολοκαυτώματος. Δεν είναι τυχαίο που το βιβλίο διδάσκεται από τη δεκαετία του 60 σε σχολεία. Ούτε ύφος ούτε μυθοπλασία, μόνο η παράθεση της αλήθειας, με οξυδέρκεια, βάθος ψυχής και τρυφερότητα απέναντι στον άνθρωπο.

    Very well written. A recount of Life In Hell on Earth.


  • Greta

    Survival in AuschwitzA well-written, accessible testimony of day to day life in the Lager of Buna-Monowitz (Auschwitz), from January 1944 until its liberation on 27 January 1945. The struggle with hunger, cold, tiredness and sickness becomes almost tangible while reading the many true stories which are absorbingly told. The author's intelligent, insightful thoughts on the dehumanization caused by this constant struggle and humiliation of the Jewish prisoners, make this book a superior, timeless [...]

Era judeu.Teve a sorte de ir escapando aos fornos crematórios e sobreviver até à chegada do exército russo e consequente fuga dos alemães.

    First off, I must point out that I think it is very difficult to rate someone's personal and emotional account of an event in their life, and even more so when it was a tragedy like the holocaust. That being said, I of course rated the novel five stars, because it is not only a completely true account but it was also written brilliantly. I had the chance before I read this book to read "Man's Search for Meaning", which is another book about the experiences of a survivor of a concentration camp, [...]

    Cuốn sách này, ngoài những mô tả về cuộc sống dưới mức con người ở Auschwitz, còn phơi bày một khía cạnh nhỏ cho thấy vì sao người Do Thái luôn được cho là dân tộc kinh doanh giỏi nhất, và có đầu óc sáng tạo bậc nhất. Ngay cả ở Auschwitz người ta vẫn có thể họp chợ, buôn bán và tạo ra "thị trường". :)Ngoài ra, cuốn sách này tạo ra một bộ đôi không thể hoàn hảo hơn với "Chiến tra [...]

    Khi người ta hai mươi bốn tuổi, hãy còn “ít hiểu biết, không kinh nghiệm và dứt khoát muốn sống trong một thế giới siêu thực của mình”, mà bị bắt rồi đưa vào trại tập trung Auschwitz - nơi sau này sẽ được ghi nhận như một trong những nơi chốn khủng khiếp nhất trong lịch sử loài người - người ta sẽ khó lòng gọi đó là một chuyện may mắn. Có lẽ chỉ khi là một trong số rất ít ỏi [...]

    AuschwitzImpressionante e verdadeiramente aterradorPrimo Levi, nasceu em Turim, Itália, em 1919, judeu e engenheiro químico - sobrevivente ao Holocausto nazi, perpetrado pelo Partido Nazista Alemão, liderado por Adolf Hitler, num genocídio selectivo de cerca de seis milhões de judeus, durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial – torna-se escritor, iniciando uma ampla produção literária de diversos livros de memórias/ensaios, contos, poemas e romances, sendo que “Se Isto É Um Homem” é a su [...]


  • Marco Tamborrino

    È uomo chi uccide, è uomo chi fa o subisce ingiustizia; non è uomo chi, perso ogni ritegno, divide il letto con un cadavere. Chi ha atteso che il suo vicino finisse di morire per togliergli un quarto di pane, è, pur senza sua colpa, più lontano dal modello dell'uomo pensante, che il più rozzo pigmeo e il sadico più atroce.Molti hanno scritto su questo libro, molto è stato scritto in generale sul genocidio degli ebrei. Non è mia intenzione scrivere un sermone a difesa degli ebrei, perch [...]


  • Maria João

    8 de 10*Campos de concentração, judeus, nazis, alemães, trabalhos forçados, arame farpado. Estas palavras serão suficientes para qualquer pessoa fazer a associação com a barbaridade que a Europa viveu no século passado. Mas nunca serão suficientes os livros, filmes ou debates sobre o tema, para que este se mantenha bem vivo na mente de quem teve a sorte de não o viver e para que não se volte a repetir!Comentário completo em:abibliotecadajoao/


  • Kirstine

    What do you say about a book such as this? Other than it’s important to read it? I’m not sure. This is Primo Levi’s eye witness account, his version of his personal experiences being a prisoner in Auschwitz during WWII. It’s not exaggerated, it’s not put into a neat narrative, with a clear beginning, middle and end. Which may be what makes it all the more powerful. He writes in a way that’s almost analytical, each chapter covers a particular subject or theme. There’s little thought [...]


  • Luís C.

    It is not necessary to consume mountains of books to understand the atrocity, inhumanity, visceral cruelty of war. Only One. No need to cram definitions and issue cries to understand what an organized genocide. Only One. Needless to collect thousands of testimonials to get an idea of the trauma experienced by those who escaped the carnage in extremis of the death camps. Only One. No need to make multiple detailed diagrams to explain the process of dehumanization carefully meditated to destroy al [...]


  • Filipe Miguel

    A vida no LagerPrimo Levi, como escritor, nasceu num campo de concentração. Neste campo de concentração. Mesmo em pleno direito de exacerbar o que por si só foi um expoente do drama humano, sem sucumbir ao caminho mais fácil, quiçá mais lógico, Levi narra quase de forma imparcial e em formato episódico sucessivo, a vida num Lager que nunca quis para si. Nada mais é do que isso. Não necessita. De escrita simples contraposta à temática imensamente complexa, expõe o que de mau há no [...]


  • Aggeliki

    Πιστεύω πως αυτό το βιβλίο δεν χρειάζεται βαθμολογία. Ξέρω πως είναι υποκειμενικός ο παράγοντας του πως βλέπει κάποιο άτομο το εκάστοτε βιβλίο αλλά πραγματικά απορώ για βαθμούς κάτω του 5.


  • André

    Se Isto É Um Homem, capta a realidade através do sentimento do homem, que se torna escritor, para não esquecer e para que outros não esqueçam. Primo Levi foi um homem de cariz vulgar, preso em Auschwitz sem culpa formada que não fosse o facto de ser judeu, torna-se o herói protagonista de uma obra literária sem precedentes, dado que num relato lúcido e impressionante nos dá a conhecer o quotidiano de um dos campos de extermínio mais repulsivo e que espelha o horror e a violência do r [...]
