Two fragments Primo Levi


Visitor, look at what remains of this camp and ponder. Whichever country you come from, you are not a stranger. Let your journey not be in vain, let not our deaths be in vain. May the ashes of Auschwitz serve as a warning to you and to your children; ensure that the horrendous fruit of hatred, whose traces you have here seen, do not give up new seed, tomorrow or ever


The sea’s only gifts are harsh blows and, occasionally, the chance to feel strong. Now, I don’t know much about the sea, but I do know that that’s the way it is here. And I also know how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong but to feel strong, to measure yourself at least once, to find yourself at least once in the most ancient of human conditions, facing blind, deaf stone alone, with nothing to help you but your own hands and your own head…

- Primo Levi (Turin, 1919-1987)
