We felt the weight of centuries on our shoulders … (The Truce) Levi, the younger man, scarred by his experiences and prone to phases of depression, nevertheless seems to have reintegrated more quickly and more successfully than his older companion. He started working in a paint factory outside the city, met his future wife and, all the while, was telling stories, writing poems and fragments of prose. Over the course of 1946, these would come together as his first book – and, we now know, one of the very greatest works of Holocaust testimony – If This is a Man.

The first group was taken to Monowitz, where there was a concentration camp administratively dependent on Auschwitz, and about 8 kilometres away from it, which had been set up towards the middle of 1942 in order to provide labour for the construction of the ‘Buna-Werke’ industrial complex, a subsidiary of IG Farbenindustrie. It housed ten to twelve thousand prisoners, even though its normal capacity was only seven to eight thousand men. The majority of these were Jews of every nationality in Europe, while a small minority was made up of German and Polish criminals, Polish ‘politicals’, and ‘saboteurs’.

These and many other points of extraordinary detail aside, however, the larger significance of Auschwitz Report is threefold.

Such a ‘first’ would be extraordinary enough in and of itself, but the report also has more nuanced value for our understanding of Levi’s work.
