Auschwitz Report, Hardback
2 out of 5 (1 rating)


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.

Review by

This book is the english translation of the italian original Rapporto sull'organizzazione igienico-sanitaria del campo di concentramento per ebrei di Monowitz (Auschwitz-Alta Silesia), and was written by the famous italian writer and a fellow inmate of Auschwitz for the Soviet authorities soon after the camp liberations. As the italian title indicates, it is a report on the hygienic-sanitary conditions in the camp.
