Was Primo gay? Are you retarded or just disrespectful? I hope you were just trying to make light of a bad situation. In any case I'm not amused.

Primo Levi was not gay because he married a womean. He only slept with another man in Auschwitz because he was cold.

Primo Levi had a wife. he was probably cold when he slept with another man. everyone needs to be warm because they could die.

Levi, HAD to sleep with another man, he wasn't exactly given a choice. They were not allowed to sleep by themselves in the bunks because then they may have been comfortable, and if you remember correctly they weren't supposed to be comphy. Justin, that is one of the most ignorant things I have ever read. During that time, if you hadn't noticed from the book, the prisoners were not exactly given all of the commodities that we are! I stand with LP, I am not amused. In my opion the Holocaust and the dreadful things that these people had to go through are not things to joke about, you are obviously incapable of empathy.
