Event description: 

This year marks the hundredth anniversary of Primo Levi’s birth. To celebrate the centenary of Italy’s revered and beloved survivor/witness of the Shoah, Yale will host Levi’s biographer, Ian Thomson, who will speak about how the author came to write his first great book, Se questo è un uomo (published in the U.S. as Survival in Auschwitz, and in the U.K. as If This Is a Man, the literal rendering of the Italian title).
