  1. I like your long reading list- its inspiring. I wrote two posts on Primo Levis KZ books and I am reading a huge biography about his whole life called Primo Levi – a Life by Ian Thomson

    • Thank You. Primo Levi’s Survival in Auschwitz is actually one of my favorite books. I found it to be a gripping and rather accurate account of the situation in concentration camps during WWII. I would certainly recommend it, if you haven’t already read it.

      • The ones I have read is ” if this is a man” and the following ” The Truce” I read them twice in Danish and I will order them on English to have on my own. In the biography it’s said that the English translation is very good
