You’d figure that by now I’d’ve read this, but I had not.
Levi deals in straight reporting, very little narrative. His description of the last days after the German desertion of the camp and prior to the Allies’ liberation is pure science fiction.
I still cite Jean-Francois Steiner’s Treblinka as the most informative (and depressing) book about the Holocaust I’ve read, but this is certainly up there. And….uh….I don’t really have much more to say about it.
