If not now, when? by Primo Levi( Book )
37 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,004 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
Survival in Auschwitz : the Nazi assault on humanity by Primo Levi( Book )
126 editions published between 1959 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 936 libraries worldwide
Primo Levi's account of life as a concentration camp prisoner falls into two parts. If This Is A Man describes his deportation to Poland and the twenty months he spent working in Auschwitz. The Truce covers his long journey home to Italy at the end of the war through Russia and Central Europe. Levi never raises his voice, complains or attributes blame. By telling his story quietly, objectively and in plain language he renders both the horror and the hope of the situation with absolute clarity. Probing the themes which preoccupy all his writing - work, love, power, the nature of things, what it is to be human - he leave the reader drained, elated, apprehensive
Auschwitz report by Primo Levi( Book )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 848 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

86 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 354 libraries worldwide
Dwadzieścia jeden błyskotliwych opowiadań, których tytuły stanowią nazwy pierwiastków chemicznych. Żelazo, potas, cyna, rtęć ... potraktowane jako metafora, stają się kluczem do interpretacji ludzkich losów i charakterów. Portrety ludzi, których autor znał zarówno w czasach faszystowskich Włoch, jak w okresie Holokaustu i po wojnie - tworzą barwną autobiograficzną opowieść o człowieku wciągniętym w wir historii i przypadku, o przyjaźni i miłości, o wierności zasadom i poszukiwaniu sensu. W "Układzie okresowym", który po raz pierwszy ukazuje się w Polsce, Primo Levi łączy swoją pasję chemika z talentem literackim i niebywałym zmysłem obserwacji. Krótka forma pozwala mu wyrazić literacko doświadczenia, których był uczestnikiem, w najbardziej autentyczny i przejmujący sposób. Kondycja chemika natomiast okazuje się uniwersalną formułą życia człowieka, który musi stale określać swoje miejsce wobec Natury - bezlitosnej Materii, losu i historii
