This essay is an attempt by the author to properly answer for the suicide of Primo Levi. He attempts to do so by way of deconstruction, by calling into question the responsibility of deconstruction in the epoch “after Auschwitz” & “after Bosnia” – an era when murder & genocide, thought to have ended with Auschwitz, continue. The author reads Levi’s suicide as a warning of the consequences of the destruction of memory that has been perpetrated by deconstruction.
