Primo Levi's Resistance
Available in Stock
Primo Levi is admired for his powerful testimony of survival in Auschwitz, but he was more than a witness. For three months in 1943, he was an anti-Nazi partisan fighter, but neither he nor his biographers have said much about this episode. Combining investigative flair with profound empathy, this pioneering book unearths the ‘ugly secret’ that haunted Levi for the rest of his life, and provides an insight into both Resistance politics and the moral complexity of his work.
