about this book

Translated by Raymond Rosenthal. Levi writes of the moral collapse that occurred in Auschwitz and the fallibility of human memory that allows such atrocities to recur.

"By the end of his life, Levi had become increasingly convinced that the lessons of the Holocaust were destined to be lost as it took a place among the routine atrocities of history. The Drowned and the Saved is a dark meditation on the meaning of the Nazi exterminations after the passing of forty years."
--The New York Times Book Review
