"Literature, History and Humanity: Reflecting on the Shoah in Italy through the Words of Primo Levi and the Jewish Community of Rome


Italian Studies at Notre Dame and the Rome Global Gateway invite you to a reading and conversation that will bring together the Notre Dame community in Rome and on the main campus to reflect on how significant voices from the past can help us affirm humanity, work responsibly towards the future and express Notre Dame’s continued commitment to education as a vital force for civil rights, human rights, and social justice against violence and oppression. 

Readings from Rome will feature passages from Giacoma Limentani’s Trilogy and Giacomo Debenedetti’s October 16, 1943.

Refreshments served. Click here to RVSP.Texts from the main campus will feature works of Primo Levi.
