By Primo Levi
'The Drowned and the Saved dispels the myth that Primo Levi forgave the Germans for what they did to his people. He didn't, and couldn't forgive. He refused, however, to indulge in what he called "the bestial vice of hatred" which is an entirely different matter. The voice that sounds in his writing is that of a reasonable man . . . it warns and reminds us that the unimaginable can happen again. A would-be tyrant is waiting in the wings, with "beautiful words" on his lips. The book is constantly impressing on us the need to learn from the past, to make sense of the senseless' - Paul Bailey
This book is written by a survivor of Auschwitz and this particular book of his tackles a number of deep questions and important facets of the Holocaust. His chapters are named for and focus on seperate but poignant parts of his experience and his post-release attempts at understanding what he and others had witnessed. A chapter named 'Communication' for example talks about how being boarded with people speaking other languages figuratively made his tongue wither and lead to a lack of thought because his thoughts could not exercise themselves with other like minded people. This book is fascinating, heartbreaking and enlightening.
