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

82 editions published between 1982 and 2012 in 13 languages and held by 1,969 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

7 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 815 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 )

151 editions published between 1963 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 587 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

Se non ora, quando? by Primo Levi( Book )

45 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Italian-Jewish writer and chemist, who first gained fame with his autobiographical story SE QUESTO È UN UOMO (1947, If This is a Man) of survival in Nazi concentration camps. For the last forty years of his life Levi devoted himself to attempting to deal with the fact that he was not killed in Auschwitz. "The worst survived, that is, the fittest; the best all died," he said. Levi also published poetry, science fiction, essays, and short stories. In 1987, at the age of 67, he killed himself. Italo Calvino called Levi "one of the most important and gifted writers of our time."

The drowned and the saved by Primo Levi( Book )

77 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shortly after completing THE DROWNED AND THE SAVED, Primo Levi committed suicide. The matter of his death was sudden, violent and unpremiditated, and there were some who argue that he killed himself because he was tormented by guilt - guilt that he had survived the horrors of Auschwitz while others, better than he, had gone to the wall. THE DROWNED AND THE SAVED is Levi's impassioned attempt to understand the 'rationale' behind the concentration camps, was completed shortly before his tragic death in 1987. THE DROWNED AND THE SAVED dispels the myth that Primo Levi forgave the Germans for what they did to his people. He didn't and couldn't forgive. He refused, however, to indulge in what he called 'the bestial vice of hatred' which is an entirely different matter. The voice that sounds in his writing is that of a reasonable warns and reminds us that the unimaginable can happen again. A would-be tyrant is waiting in the wings, with 'beautiful words' on his lips. The book is constantly impressing on us the need to learn from the past, to make sense of the senseless' PAUL BAILEY
