Don't buy this edition,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Survival In Auschwitz (Paperback)
This edition appears to be a Print-On-Demand situation where the publisher has had a computer perform a very bad spelling and grammatical check, making the experience of reading this classic quite annoying and inappropriately laughable.
(One example of many: "We saw a large door with assign above it. Brightly it illuminated (its memory still strikes me in my dreams): Arbeit Macht Frei." (p. 17)
Buy an edition where a publishing house has actually paid a HUMAN to copy edit and proofread the text. Even if it costs more. I wish I hadn't gone for the bargain on this one.

I have to agree with the original reviewer. The formatting of this imprint by BN Publishing is really bad. Random paragraphs have blank lines in the middle and there are proofing errors. Luckily, nothing can detract from Levi's profound message.
