In Primo Levi and the Identity of a Survivor, Nancy Harrowitz examines the complex role that Levi’s cultural identity played in his choices of how to portray his survival, as well as his exposition of topics such as bystander complicity.
Nancy Harrowitz is an associate professor of Italian and Jewish studies at Boston University.
