Primo Levi (1919-87) was born in Turin and worked as an industrial chemist until 1943, when he was captured as a partisan and sent to Auschwitz. The memoirs and essays that followed, If This Is a Man, The Truce and The Drowned and the Saved, were reflections upon his experience as a prisoner and a survivor. A later autobiography, The Periodic Table, as well as several short stories and a novel, further established his literary reputation. His two books of poetry, Shema and Ad ora incerta, were released after his death as Collected Poems.
