If not now, when? by Primo Levi( Book )

24 editions published between 1985 and 2000 in English and held by 1,704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the final days of World War II, a band of Jewish partisans makes its way from Russia to Italy, moving toward the ultimate goal of Palestine. Based on a true story, the novel chronicles their adventures as they wage a personal war of revenge against the Nazis: blowing up trains, rescuing the last victims of concentration camps, scoring victories in the face of unspeakable devastation. Primo Levi captures the landscape and the people of Eastern Europe in vivid detail, depicting as well the terrible bleakness of war-ridden Europe. But finally, what he gives us is a tribute to the strength and ingenuity of the human spirit

Auschwitz report by Primo Levi( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While awaiting return home in a Russian-administered holding camp in Katowice, Poland, in 1945, Primo Levi, along with his friend, the doctor Leonardo De Benedetti, was asked to provide a report on living conditions in Auschwitz for the Russian authorities. Published the following year, it was then forgotten and has until now remained unknown to a wider public. Here, it is published for the first time in the English language." "Dating from the weeks and months immediately after the war, Auschwitz Report represents a return to the very earliest phase of Holocaust testimony. It details the authors' deportation to Auschwitz, selection for work and extermination, everyday life in the camp, and the organization and working of the gas chambers. It constitutes Levi's first attempts to come to terms with events that would drive him to create some of the greatest works of twentieth-century literature and testimony."--Jacket

La tregua by Primo Levi( Book )

132 editions published between 1963 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La tregua, seguito di Se questo e un uomo, e considerato da molti il capolavoro di Levi: diario del viaggio verso la liberta dopo l'internamento nel lager nazista, questo libro, piu che una semplice rievocazione biografica, e uno straordinario romanzo picaresco. L'avventura movimentata e struggente tra le rovine dell'Europa liberata - da Auschwitz attraverso la Russia, la Romania, l'Ungheria, l'Austria fino a Torino - si snoda in un itinerario tortuoso, punteggiato di incontri con persone appartenenti a civilta sconosciute, e vittime della stessa guerra: da Cesare, "amico di tutto il mondo", ciarlatano, truffatore, temerario ed innocente alle bibliche tradotte dell'Armata Russa in disarmo. L'epopea di un'umanita ritrovata, che cerca una nuova volonta di vivere, dopo il limite estremo dell'orrore e della miseria
