Primo Levi is known for his essays, short stories, poems and novels. Originally a chemist, Levi later became popular as a writer. He is popular for his book, ‘If This Is a Man’ which is a greatly documented account of his stay as a prisoner in the Auschwitz concentration camp in Nazi-occupied Poland. Levi is regarded as one of the best known authors of the twentieth century and he earned it for his biographical book. Being born in a Jewish Italian family Levi’s family was subjected to Nazi terror. Levi himself gave bare testimony of his time as a Nazi slave labourer. Various works of Levi have been translated to English in recent times. Primo Levy’s most popular work ‘If This Is a Man’ was made into a stage adaptation named ‘Primo’ in 2004. Films have also been made on Levi’s life and imprisonment. Levi worked hard to prove the revisionist attitudes trying to rewrite the history of the camps as less horrific wrong. Levi attended hundreds of schools to share his horrific Nazi concentration camp experiences. Many hail Levi as a fearless Jew who survived Nazi domination only to tell the world tales of life, gore and merciless acts.
