Discussion on Primo Levi, Holocaust survivor

March 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

How can one find the words to describe the trauma and agony suffered at Auschwitz after one’s humanity has been taken away?

Francesco Bonavita will explore Levi’s life; how Italian Jews saw themselves vis-à-vis the rise of fascism; his experience at Auschwitz; and his commitment to keep alive the narrative of the Holocaust.

Born in Rome, Bonavita earned his doctorate in Comparative Literature on the Italian Renaissance. He taught at Kean University and NYU and writes about Italian cities on his blog, www.thewondersofitaly.com.

Event is made possible by Casa Belvedere. To register visit their website at casa-belvedere.org/.
