Identity, ethnic identity, witnessing and bearing witness after the Shoah : a psychoanalytic look at Primo Levi / by Sunny E. Kuegle.
This is a study of Primo Levi, an Italian Jew who survived the Nazi death camps in Poland during World War II. My hope is to provide an in-depth look at how his sense of his identity evolved over the course of his lifetime, and was greatly shaped by the realization of the bigotry mighty enough to bind the human mind, and loosen the hatred that ignited and energized the Holocaust. I also consider Levi as a witness to the horror of the Shoah, who then went on to bear witness, both as a means of personally mourning the senseless slaughter of millions, and as a perpetual reminder and admonition to the world of the tragedy of the Nazi era.
