    I asked my father, who is slightly built and about Levi's height, whether, when he visited Levi's apartment building, he thought he could fall accidentally in that way. The really perplexing fact, however, is the day of the telephone call. Jean Améry committed precisely that kind of suicide in 1978. They had the ability to sync with each other to coordinate their attacks without talking. The day before he died, he promised to resume his regular conversations with Giovanni Tesio, who was writing a biographical piece on him. Reading Camus in Time of Plague and Polarization. If Levi wanted to kill himself, he, a chemical engineer by profession, would have known better ways than jumping into a narrow stairwell with the risk of remaining paralyzed. Older people almost never choose a violent death; they use gas or an overdose, and Primo could, had he wished, have taken an overdose of his medicine. We have to imagine that Levi brought himself to confide his deepest sorrows to the Rabbi by phone, in a relatively short time, though he had never met or spoken to him before. Could Levi have unintentionally fallen over that banister? 1. Furthermore, Toaff told me that he did not know Levi and had never met or spoken with him before that day. Not his, not theirs. Since this article first appeared in 1999 two new pieces of evidence have emerged lending further support to the hypothesis of an accident. This unsettling question was not voiced publicly in Italy. She had barely reached her cubicle on the ground floor, she later told the police, when she heard Levi's body hit the bottom of the stairs by the elevator. It did not happen then because Primo wanted (and had to) write. Even if he contemplated suicide it seems virtually certain that he did not plan it in that way and at that particular time. Meanwhile, it's not like Eren has that amazing of a track record as a titan up until that point. Yes but he was unconscious and still was able to recover and finish the mission, his threat was toward the titans and the records were probably done by either Keith who's always scared for no reason or Pixis who's chill so I don't think it has been kept has something important inside the military, Yes but he killed like half of the titans in an afternoon that a member of Levi's squad killed in his whole life, He is also the personification of hope and anger against the titans, Yes but their trust issues should've been resolved since the spoon incident. The really mystifying puzzle now is not whether he killed himself but why, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, Levi's biographers, Angier but also Ian Thomson (Primo Levi, 2002), persist in believing that he did. I clearly remember that I fell down for a quarter of a mile on an icy slope while ski mountaineering and nearly killed myself, but I do not now remember the day it was or even the year. Cohen explains why older men are more at risk by referring to the fact that hopelessness rather than depression as such triggers suicide. He did not tell the Rabbi he was about to kill himself, and the Rabbi, much to his chagrin, did not guess what was about to happen. While much remains uncertain, Boston Review’s responsibility to public reason is sure. It is a dream within a dream, varied in detail, one in substance. Chapter 59 cannot come here quick enough! Others said he could no longer bear the sight of his old, ailing, senile mother and mother-in-law, both in their 90s, who lived in the family's large apartment under the constant care of a nurse. I think it was the memory of those years which lead him towards his death. (Washington D.C.: Berg, 1995), p. 170. I have a photograph of Primo holding those banisters, which are well below waist-height; I think that on the point of fainting, he reached for them to steady himself and fell. All three sources, two of them close to the Rabbi's family, categorically excluded this possibility. Remember that the concierge said that after descending from Levi's third floor apartment she had just entered her cubicle when she heard Levi's body hit the ground. Or perhaps he was looking for the concierge herself. He might well have wanted to check to see whether she was on her way back. Levi wrote several books that are either weakly related to the camp or not related at all (The Periodic Table, The Monkey's Wrench, If Not Now When). Eren has survivor's guilt. "3 No signs of violence unrelated to the fall were found on his body.4 At 12:00, barely an hour and a half after the event, I heard the news on the radio in Rome. I also spoke to doctor Giorgio Luzzati, who was a friend of Levi and looked after his health. Knowing that, why the hell should they have him transform there? Copyright © 1993-2020 Boston Review and its authors. And here is the shorty! It was a sudden folly that brought him to self-destruction. The most poignant comment in this regard came from his son Renzo: "Now everyone wants to understand, to grasp, to probe. 10. All we can do is to check whether the facts convincingly exclude the possibility of an accident. Maybe he only partially transforms, and can't flee anymore. Something bothers me about how little we really got out of them as cool as they seemed to be with Petra killing over 50 Titans, it felt in the end they weren't used for anything more than to teach Eren about choices and hindsight. The maximum distance between the stairs and the elevator shaft is 5 feet, 7 inches; the minimum distance is just over 3 feet, 4 inches. He even arranged an interview with a journalist from La Stampa for the following Monday. Maybe it wouldn't work, and Eren just injured himself for no reason. "14 She expressed what probably many others, myself included, silently suspected. Levi sounded distressed. You cannot fully trust a person who was just revealed to be able to shift into a titan, especially after that person tried to kill a close family member in said form, despite him eventually helping tremendously. she asked rhetorically. Levi died on a Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath, on which observant Jews are not supposed to use any technical equipment: they cannot cook or even turn on the light, let alone make or receive phone calls. The confidence with which Levi's death was attributed to suicide seems to spring more from this understandable bias than from the weight of the evidence. He also told me that out of discretion he had never spoken about that episode to anyone before, not even privately. Several additional signs indicate that his depression, though no doubt real, did not drive him into an idle stupor or turn him into a recluse. A third group, especially in Turin's Jewish community, said he was greatly upset by the controversy, sparked by revisionist historians in Germany and France, over the extent and uniqueness of the Holocaust. Devastating past events cast a shadow on future ones, and constrain our freedom to interpret them: if one survives Auschwitz, everything that happens subsequently tends to be interpreted in the light of that experience. Even so, we must still stretch our imagination. Levi knew and taught the value of doubt about unverified propositions and opinions founded on emotion. His wife, Lucia, said he was tired and demoralized, and confirmed he was suffering from depression. Hey! Thus, if we assume that his suicide was caused by the unbearable memories of the camp, we must question the accuracy of his self-report. Thus if he snapped from normal to suicidal, that must have occurred in a matter of seconds, for what he said to the nurse does not square with someone planning to kill himself. An accidental death, then, is fully consistent with what we know about the end of Levi's life. You'll notice that he's making a shift in his strategies, as the Levi squad does the opposite of what he says. It follows that "we can tolerate all sorts of pain and suffering if we can remain even vaguely optimistic that things will get better.". And this would not be the first time that a police inquiry reached a conclusion without an in-depth investigation. Even if we think that the value of his work will survive unaffected by his death, we know that others feel differently. Read the conclusion of The Truce and you will understand. One could perhaps reject those remarks as unfounded, even unfair. Understandably, Camon cannot square this act with a suicide.

Indeed, the possibility of an accident was never seriously examined. Meanwhile, knowing what they knew, that they were facing an athletic titan in control of her body, they believed they could win, and they were right. Speculating about a person's mental chemistry to establish whether the person committed suicide leads us to a dead end. Their immense value sprang from that fusion: his life seemed to exemplify the possibilities of human decency explored in his books, and to stand as evidence that those possibilities were not mere wishful thinking. Why then were people so prone to believe unquestioningly that it was suicide? "Did anyone find a piece of paper announcing his intention to end his life? Maybe the Rabbi remembers the timing incorrectly. Levi Ackerman was no stranger to Death. He feared Gallimard had lost the copy of The Drowned and the Saved and wanted to send another. Recently Camon said that Levi posted it that very Saturday morning during a walk he took before his fatal fall.

In an April 12, 1987 interview in La Repubblica, Giovanni Tesio referred to Levi's fear of being unable to write anymore, his sense of having depleted his "writer capital." Levi left no will. A further sign of the vitality of survivors Hass documented is the unusual energy with which survivors went about marrying and having children soon after they left the camps.

Erd has all his attention on his wife, but she catches Levi's eye and mouths thank you. And since "the rage of resentment is somehow linked to self-destruction"—as Levi himself had pointed out analyzing the suicide of Jean Améry, another writer who survived Auschwitz—his final book on the camp should be seen "as the bitterest of suicide notes." I don’t believe so. Indeed, the known facts known arguably suggest an accident more strongly than they do suicide. He'd simply seen and greeted Death too many times to break every time. Ozick went even further. Now this inner dream, this dream of peace, is over, and in the outer dream, which continues, gelid, a well-known voice resounds: a single word, not imperious, but brief and subdued.
