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
