Witches' sabbath; [an unexpurgated autobiography]

Stein and Day, New York. 1964, 315p., very good first US edition in cloth-backed boards and lightly-worn dj. Young 3396* Sachs was a flagrant homosexual Jew who converted to Catholicism, but had to leave seminary due to an affair with a young man. During the 1920s he was involved with Cocteau, Genet, LeDuc et al. During the War he took money to help Jews escape Germany. Captured, imprisoned and forced on a death-march he fell by the wayside and was shot in the neck and left to die. On passing a herd of sheep he was reported to have sighed and stated "Ah, the Jews."
