The remains of the Holocaust and its researchers stand silent in their desperate efforts to pass on to future generations the horror and lessons of that time. Primo Levi (1919-1987), a chemist born in Turin who survived the inferno, shocked readers and interested people around the world with works that break through the walls of blackness and bereavement. In his simple and poetic language, in his abundant human warmth, he shines a glimmer of hope and reveals the man who has not worn out and preserved his image. In this book, the author's first work, the experience of the two years spent in the Auschwitz death camp is described. "Is this a person?" It is the first book in a trilogy, the other two parts of which will also be published in the following years in "Sefrit Afkim".
