Primo Levi, an Auschwitz survivor, felt obliged “to live to tell.” He wrote: “Human memory is a marvelous but fallacious instrument…The experiences that we survivors of the Nazi Lagers (camps) carry within us are becoming more extraneous as the years pass…We must be listened to…It happened, therefore it can happen again. This is the core of what we have to say.”

This course will take up his challenge to listen and learn from what he has to say. The course will be conducted as a series of seminars in which participants will discuss selections from three of his iconic books: “Survival in Auschwitz,” “The Drowned and the Saved,” and “The Periodic Table.” Participants are strongly urged to purchase the readily available texts to fully appreciate the context of selections, and to enhance class discussion.

The course is free. Come to one, two, or all three!
