Mission Statement

The Centro Primo Levi is a New York based organization inspired by the humanistic legacy of writer and chemist Primo Levi. The Center offers public and academic programs and publications on the history of Italian Jews and Judaism. Its main focus on 20th century totalitarianism expands to a history of over two thousand years in an ongoing effort to present the experience and perspective of a minority and its relation with mainstream culture in ancient and modern societies.

Description

Centro Primo Levi is a New York based organization inspired by the humanistic legacy of writer and chemist Primo Levi, who survived Auschwitz and

contributed significantly to the post-World War II debate on the role of memory in modern societies. CPL cultivates education and debate on Primo Levi’s work, the Italian Jewish past as well as in current perspectives and conversations of the Italian Jewish community today.

Topics discussed in our public programs and academic seminars are disseminated through our online monthly Printed Matter and publishing endeavor, CPL Editions.

The Center works closely with many Italian organizations, particularly with the Center for Contemporary Jewish Documentation in Milan and the Primo Levi International Research Center in Turin. Located at the Center for Jewish History in Manhattan, CPL operates under the auspices of the Consulate General of Italy and partners with universities in Italy, Israel and the U.S.
