Auschwitz Report Primo Levi and Leonardo de Benedetti

Among the first written accounts of the concentration camps—a major literary and historical discovery. First published in 1946, and then forgotten, this rediscovered portrayal of life in the camp details the authors’ harrowing deportation to Auschwitz, and how those who disembarked from the train were selected for work or extermination. Dating from the weeks and months immediatly after the war, it constitutes Levi’s first lucid attempts to come to terms with the raw horror of events that drove him to create some of the greatest works of twentieth-century literature. 'The book is important not just because it is the first published work by Levi; it contains the seeds of his great Survival in Auschwitz’ – New Yorker
