    The Holocaust and United Nations Outreach Programme in partnership with the Centro Primo Levi New York is organising a roundtable discussion on the occasion of Yom HaShoah.

    The roundtable discussion will explore themes found in Primo Levi’s writings including scientific ethics, history and memory, language and transmission, and  justice and responsibility. After a dramatic reading of a passage identified from Primo Levi's recently published The Complete Works of Primo Levi, a panel of scholars and writers will comment on Levi’s work. The event will also demonstrate the universal appeal of Primo Levi and his contribution to humanity.
