Primo Levi was captured by the Fascist Militia on December 13, 1943, at the age of 24.
He was Italian-Jewish.
He was then sent to a detention camp called Fossoli.
When roll was called at the camp, for every person that wasn’t there, ten were killed.
The weather was very intense and cold.
The SS Army forced all the young men off the train and grouped them together.
All their watches and money were taken by the SS.
Your mettle was not made; you were made men, To follow after knowledge and excellence” (qtd. in Levi 113).
