Primo Levi

Primo Levi

 Primo Levi

Levi was born into a Liberal Jewish family in Turin in 1919. He studied Chemistry at the University of Turin and graduated in 1941, despite racial laws introduced by Mussolini which prohibited Jewish citizens from entering into higher education. He worked for a pharmaceutical company until the German invasion of Northern Italy. Levi joined the resistance movement, but was captured and in time was sent to Auschwitz where he spent just under a year before the camp was liberated. After returning to Italy he worked as an Industrial Chemist and started to write about his experiences, which led to the memoirs "Se questo é un uomo" (If This Is a Man) and "La tregua" (The Truce). Levi retired from his job in 1977 to write full-time, and several of his books have won literary prizes. He died in 1987 after falling from the third floor stairwell of his apartment block.<
