Leonardo De Benedetti (1898–1983), also a native of Turin, was captured and deported to Auschwitz in the same year as Levi. After liberation, he resumed his work as a physician.
"One of the most important and gifted writers of our time."
"The triumph of human identity and worth over the pathology of human destruction glows virtually everywhere in Levi′s writing ...Time and time again we are moved by his narratives of how men refuse erasure."
"Primo Levi′s poise was one of the greatest achievements in the history of the human spirit. His writing restored the honor of humanism after Auschwitz."
"Whether as witness or imaginative artist, Levi stands high among the truly essential European writers of the past century."
Michael Dirda, Washington Post
"Their unvarnished testimony speaks volumes about the weight of responsibility felt by survivors such as Levi to ensure that the world never forgot the "insane dream of building a thousand–year empire upon millions of corpses and slaves."
The Sydney Morning Herald
"Levi writes of unspeakable things with charity, clarity and objectivity."
