ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Testimonianza sconvolgente sull'inferno dei Lager, libro della dignità e dell'abiezione dell'uomo di fronte allo sterminio di massa, "Se questo è un uomo" è un capolavoro letterario di una misura, di una compostezza già classiche. È un'analisi fondamentale della composizione e della storia del Lager, ovvero dell'umiliazione, dell'offesa, della degradazione dell'uomo, prima ancora della sua soppressione nello sterminio. Primo Levi, reduce da Auschwitz, pubblicò "Se questo è un uomo nel 1947". Einaudi lo accolse nel 1958 nei "Saggi" e da allora viene continuamente ristampato ed è stato tradotto in tutto il mondo.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
"Is This Is A Man": 'With the moral stamina and intellectual pose of a twentieth-century Titan, this slightly built, duitful, unassuming chemist set out systematically to remember the German hell on earth, steadfastly to think it through, and then to render it comprehensible in lucid, unpretentious prose. He was profoundly in touch with the minutest workings of the most endearing human events and with the most contempible. What has survived in Levi's writing isn't just his memory of the unbearable, but also, in THE PERIODIC TABLE and THE WRENCH, his delight in what made the world exquisite to him. He was himself a magically endearing man, the most delicately forceful enchanter I've ever known' PHILIP ROTH
Primo Levi was born in Turin in 1919 and trained as chemist. Arrested a member of the anti-fascist resistance during the war, he was deported to Auschwitz. His experiences there are described in his two classic autobiographical works, IF THIS IS A MAN and THE TRUCE.
