A primary source is a document or physical object written/created during the moment in time you are interested in researching. A primary source provides information directly from the source (a book written by Adolf Hitler). A secondary source provides information indirectly (a historian's recounting of research done on Hitler).
Indiana University at Bloomington gives an excellent example of primary sources vs. secondary sources right here.
