Reflections on the unthinkable

The Drowned and the SavedThe Drowned and the Saved by Primo Levi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another excellent book by Levi. Written in the 1980s, The Drowned and the Saved is a collection of essays reflecting on some of the major issues that life in the death camps raised: collaborators, communication, why the inmates behaved as they did, and others. Levi’s style in both of this books that I’ve read is both profound and clear, and I think that it can be attributed to Levi since the translators of the books were different.
