Un Juif pour l'exempleS the border Fernand Ischi leader of the local Nazi cell blames it all on the town’s Jewish population and wants to set an example thinking the German embassy would be grateful Ischi's dream of becoming the local gauleiter is shattered however when the milk containers used to dissimulate Bloch's body parts is discovered floatin. Chessex continued to look into the dark corners of Switzerland’s past right up to this his last but one novel It looks at the 1942 murder of Arthur Bloch a well to do Jewish cattle dealer in Payerne by some Swiss Nazi sympathisers meant as an offering to the Führer just a few days before Hitler’s birthday It wasn’t just a random murder – how the teenage killers also disposed of the body was particularly gruesome This short novel was not well received in Switzerland possibly because the Nazi chant of ‘death to the Jews’ is freuently put across in the first person alongside some possibly gratuitous SM imagery plus Chessex has a cynical take on Swiss indifference Payerne is also where Chessex grew up and the last chapter neatly but remotely connects him to the event as he explores the culpability of a particularly notorious pro Nazi religious leader I found this was just as good and sad and well told a story as his other recent biographical novel The Vampire of Ropraz and in short doses like this Chessex makes a memorable impression
