Primo Levi. Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly First published in Italy in , this newly rediscovered early work by the celebrated late author of such Holocaust memoirs as Survival in Auschwitz —an eyewitness account of conditions at Buna-Monowitz, a satellite camp of Auschwitz—appears in English for the first time. The short report was written for the Russian authorities who had liberated the camp and were gathering information on German war crimes.
While the report is not exactly a curiosity—one of the first written by eyewitnesses, it has an important place in Holocaust historiography—it contains little new information.
Some of what it does contain—for instance, the authors thought the S onderkommandos were criminal inmates rather than Jews—we now know to be inaccurate. Despite this, the publication of the document gives readers, and especially Holocaust scholars, new insights into Levi's work. An excellent introduction by editor Gordon gives an astute overview of the stylistic and historical relationship between this work and Levi's later autobiographical writings.
Levi's training as a chemist and his friend and fellow survivor De Benedetti's training as a physician bring to the piece a dispassionate tone that has, in a sense, prefigured the best writing about the Holocaust. This is an important addition to Holocaust literature, but probably of limited interest to the general reader. All rights reserved. After the Red Army liberated Auschwitz, in , the Russian command asked two ex-prisoners, Primo Levi, a young chemist, and his friend Leonardo De Benedetti, a physician, to write a report on the camp's sanitary and medical arrangements.
The following year, when the two men got home, they published their report in a medical journal and forgot about it. In this volume it appears in English for the first time. As Robert S. Gordon says in his thoughtful introduction, 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.
Stylistically, too, the "Report" can be seen as a trial run. It has the same noble sobriety as "Survival in Auschwitz," lit with flashes of irony. The supreme irony, of course, is that Auschwitz had an infirmary at all. See all Editorial Reviews.

It brought the first information to the world,who did not want to believe about the horrors happened at the camp. It is the base for his famous next book If this is man? It shows the fingerprints of the way Levi became so important as a witness and I think it is indispensable to our understanding Levi and his writing.
Highly recommended!!! One person found this helpful. Paperback Verified download. I like it a lot. As you may already know, Primo Levi on the Holocaust can be seriously depressing.
The brief Auschwitz Report is an uemotional report of some of the events and practices Levi witnessed there. Perhaps the lack of obvious emotion brings our horror into sharp relief. Twenty-five year old Primo Levi and forty-six year old Dr. Leonardo De Benedetti were two of only twenty-four survivors out of the "six hundred and fifty men, women, and children crowded into the closed wagons" of a train convoy that departed from a detention camp in Fossoli, Italy, and arrived at Auschwitz in February, The Soviet Army freed Levi and Dr.
De Benedetti on January 27, After the war, the men made their way home to Turin, "bound together as one," and "indelibly marked Moreover, this primary source is one of the earliest accounts to mention "the annihilation of the European Jews.
When the deportees arrived, many were sent to Birkenaku's gas chamber. The remaining prisoners were forced to line up every day "in rigid formation" for roll calls lasting "between one and three hours.
It was published in an Italian medical journal in Levi and De Benedetti offer a succinct, matter-of-fact, and detailed account of the medical facility in Monowitz, "a place of mistreatment, neglect, and meaningless regulation, of torture and violence meted out b its nurses.
