Note Auschwitz report / Primo Levi and Leonardo De Benedetti -- Glossary of medical and pharmaceutical terms -- In memory of a good man / Primo Levi -- Leonardo De Benedetti / Primo Levi
Immediately following his release from Auschwitz in 1945, Primo Levi, along with Dr Claudio Debenedetti, was asked to provide a report on living conditions in the concentration camp for Russian authorities. Published the following year, it was then forgotten and has until now remained unknown to a wider public. Representing the very first attempts at fathoming the horrors, the report details the deportation to Auschwitz, selections for work and extermination, everyday life in the camp, and the organization and operation of the gas chambers. "Auschwitz Report" is a significant addition to the oeuvre of the world's most renowned chronicler of the Holocaust
