Year: 2007
"Narrative & Imperative" is the first book in English on Italian Holocaust writing as a whole. Risa Sodi explores the work of eight representative authors, including the internationally famous (Primo Levi, Giorgio Bassani, and Elsa Morante) and the lesser known (Giacomo Debenedetti, Paolo Maurensig, Liana Millu, Bruno Piazza, and Giuliana Tedeschi). She examines issues of genre, language, gender, and facticity while situating the works studied within the fields of European and Holocaust letters. A brief history of the Italian Jews - the oldest Jewish community in Europe - opens the book, and the conclusion brings the study up to recent times.

A New Translation From The French By Marion Wiesel Night is Elie Wiesel's masterpiece, a candid, horrific, and deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps. This new translation by Marion Wiesel, Elie's wife and frequent translator, presents this seminal memoir in the language and spirit truest to the author's original intent. And in a substantive new preface, Elie reflects on the enduring importance of Night and his lifelong, passionate dedication to ensuring that the world never forgets man's capacity for inhumanity to man. Night offers much more than a litany of the daily terrors, everyday perversions, and rampant sadism at Auschwitz and Buchenwald; it also eloquently addresses many of the philosophical as well as personal questions implicit in any serious consideration of what the Holocaust was, what it meant, and what its legacy is and will be.

Primo Levi, author of Survival in Auschwitz and The Periodic Table, wrote books that have been called the essential works of humankind. Yet he lived an unremarkable existence, remaining until his death in the house in which he'd been born; managing a paint and varnish factory for thirty years; and tending his invalid mother to the last. Now, in a matchless account, Ian Thomson unravels the strands of a life as improbable as it was influential, the story of the most modest of men who became a universal touchstone of conscience and humanism. Drawing on exclusive access to family members and previously unseen correspondence, Thomson reconstructs the world of Levi's youth--the rhythms of Jewish life in Turin during the Mussolini years--as well as his experience in Auschwitz and difficult reintegration into postwar Italy. Thomson presents Levi in all his facets: his fondness for Louis Armstrong and fast cars, his insomnia and many near-catastrophic work accidents. Finally, he explores the controversy and isolation of Levi's later years, along with the increasing tensions in his life--between his private anguish and gift for friendship; his severe bouts of depression and passion for life and ideas; his pervasive dread and reasoned, pragmatic ethic. Praised in Britain as "the best sort of history" and "a model of its kind," Primo Levi: A Life is certain to take its place as the standard biography and a necessary companion to the works themselves.

Il dentista di Auschwitz

Il dentista di Auschwitz

La storia di Berek Jakubowicz (ora Benjamin Jacobs), uno studente ebreo di odontoiatria che nel 1941 fu deportato dal suo villaggio polacco e trascorse cinque anni nei campi di sterminio nazisti, tra cui Buchenwald, Dora-Mittelbau, e per quasi due anni Auschwitz. Ad Auschwitz, dove entrò in contatto con il famigerato Josef Mengele e assistette alla morte di suo padre, Jakubowicz riuscì a sopravvivere grazie alle sue seppur limitate capacità professionali. Gli fu consentito di esercitare una pratica dentistica primitiva sui detenuti e sugli ufficiali delle SS, così come fu obbligato ad estrarre i denti d’oro dai cadaveri dopo la gasazione. Nel maggio del 1945, con altri 15.000 detenuti, il protagonista partecipò alla marcia della morte verso la Baia di Lubecca, e fu coinvolto nel bombardamento del transatlantico ‘‘Cap Arcona’’ da parte della RAF, nel quale perirono circa 8.000 ebrei. Accolto con favore unanime dalla critica negli Stati Uniti alla sua comparsa, “Il dentista di Auschwitz” parla delle origini del male da una prospettiva unica. Organi atrofizzati giacevano accatastati sul pavimento. Mi feci forza per affrontare il corpo di un uomo di mezza età. I suoi occhi socchiusi mi fissavano, come ad accusarmi del delitto che stavo per compiere. Come cercai di divaricare la sua bocca, sentii la sua gelida pelle. Quando finalmente forzai per aprire, le mascelle si ruppero, e questo mi spaventò. Ogni successivo movimento dentro quella bocca aperta produsse un suono stridente. Immaginai che fosse il suo modo di dire ‘‘no!’’. Mi sentivo come se la morte insorgesse fino a fermarmi. Ogni pezzo d’oro che estrassi mi fece pensare a come loro, i morti, dovessero rimanere scioccati. A volte dovetti fingere, parlare con me stesso, che quello che stavo facendo era normale. Gli strumenti che usavo per quel triste compito li tenevo in una scatola rossa. Perché avessi dipinto la scatola in quel modo, non saprei dirlo. La maggior parte dei detenuti che mi vedevano camminare verso l’obitorio con quella cassetta, sapevano cosa andavo a fare, e non lo ritenevano insolito. Mio padre e mio fratello, anche loro sapevano. Ora avevo abbastanza oro per i ponti degli uomini delle SS e per le capsule. In modo semplice e schietto, Jacobs rivela la brutalità implacabile e senza senso dell’esistenza in un campo di concentramento, e, infine, il miracolo della sopravvivenza. BOOKLIST Jacobs trasmette con ancora più forza l’orrore quotidiano della vita del lager: il freddo pungente, la fame costante, l’odore di carne umana bruciata. Peggio ancora, osserva l’autore, Auschwitz era diventato un modo perverso di vivere mentre cercava di sopravvivere. PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
