This Yom Ha’ Shoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) and on the 100th anniversary of his birth, we are honoring the life and work of Italian author and Holocaust survivor, Primo Levi. The evening will feature readings and discussion of the author's work.

 

The program will include readings of some of Levi’s most famous passages by Kirsten Wynne Pullen (Department of Theatre) and Philip Phillips (Physics) and brief commentaries by Jonathan Druker (Italian, Illinois State University), Emanuel Rota (French & Italian), and Eleonora Stoppino (French & Italian).
