Portrait of Primo Levi

Primo Levi (1919–1987) lived most of his life in Turin. During the Nazi occupation of Italy, he joined a partisan group in the Alps, but was soon arrested and sent to an internment camp in Fossoli and then to Auschwitz. After the war he worked as a chemist in a paint factory and wrote many books, including _Survival in Auschwitz _and The Periodic Table, which London’s Royal Institute voted in 2006 “the best science book ever.” (updated 5/2010)
