(01) Si l'on vient à analyser l'étrange cas de Lili ElbeLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931, que Niels HoyerNiels Hoyer (historical), pseudonym of Ernst Harthern, who composed and edited Man into Woman à bien voulu conter aux lecteurs de Voilà, si l'on cherche à trouver à cette histoire extraordinaire une définition scientifique, on dira qu'il s'agit d'un de ces intersexuels dont le Dr Magnus HirschfeldMagnus Hirschfeld (1868–1935), a German physician and one of the most influential sexologists of the time; Einar Wegener was examined at his Institute in March 1930 nous a parlé l'an passé. Certes, le grand public n'a encore qu'une idée extrêmement vague de ces êtres intermédiaires, à la structure physique et à la sensibilité complexes, qu'un SteinachEugen Steinach (1861–1944), an Austrian physician who pioneered gonadal transplants and early theorized the existence of hormones ou un HirschfeldMagnus Hirschfeld (1868–1935), a German physician and one of the most influential sexologists of the time; Einar Wegener was examined at his Institute in March 1930 ont depuis longtemps classés, après avoir étudié minutieusement leur morphologie et leurs dispositions psychiques.

(02) L'histoire du peintre danois Andreas SparreAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter est d'autant plus remarquable, qu'il s'agissait dans son cas d'un appareil génital double, ainsi que d'une double personnalité. Andreas SparreAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter jeune homme qui semblait absolument normal, qui était marié et fort heureux dans sa vie conjugale, était LITTÉRALEMENT POSSÉDÉ PAR SON MOI FÉMININ, AUQUEL IL PRETAIT UNE PERSONNALITEÉ DISTINCTE. ET AUQUEL IL AVAIT DONNÉ LE NOM DE LILILili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931. On verra comment cet être semi-imaginaire, semi-réel était né dans les studios d'artistes et les bals travestis. On verra aussi comment la femmeGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator d'AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter, confidente dévouée et intelligente, témoin impuissant des souffrances et des angoisses de son mariAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter, encouragea la métamorphose finale, qu'elle accepta comme l'unique moyen de salut. C'est à l'aide d'opérations successives que le Professeur allemandProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist, auquel HoyerNiels Hoyer (historical), pseudonym of Ernst Harthern, who composed and edited Man into Woman donne dans son récit le nom de Werner KreutzProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist, « LIBERA LILILili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 » de son enveloppe masculine. La métamorphose sembla réussir pleinement, et Lili ElbeLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931, une fraiche et radieuse jeune femme, regagna le DanemarkDenmark is a Scandinavian country in northern Europe whose capital is Copenhagen., où elle obtint un nouvel état civil. A la suite d'un commun accord le divorce fut prononcé, et, Grete SparreGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator épousait un ami italienRidolfo Feruzzi (fictional), modeled on Fernando Porta (b. 1897), Gerda Wegener’s second husband. Cependant, l'être nouveau, né à la clinique féminineMunicipal Women’s Clinic (fictional), modeled on Staatliche Frauenklinik in Dresden, directed by Professor Kurt Warnekros at the time de DresdeDresden (historical), city in Germany, ne put se contenter des résultats atteints. L'instinct libéré poussait impérieusement LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 à parachever son destin en devenant mère. Un ami fidèleClaude Lejeune (fictional), modeled on Claude Prévost, friend of Lili’s whom Gerda Wegener painted in 1923 lui offre le mariage. Avant d'accepter, LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 retourne à DresdeDresden (historical), city in Germany où elle subit une nouvelle opération, des suites desquelles elle succombe, en septembre 1931. Avant de mourir, elle confie l'histoire de sa vie à Niels HoyerNiels Hoyer (historical), pseudonym of Ernst Harthern, who composed and edited Man into Woman, qui s'engage à la publier et à prêter des noms fictifs aux personnages qu'il décerira. Mais, nous sommes autorisés à dire, qu'Andreas SparreAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter s'appelait en réalité Einar WegenerEinar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter; married to Gerda Wegener; died as Lili Elbe in Dresden, 1931, et qu'il était bien connu dans les milieux de peintres et d'artistes de ParisParis (historical), capital of France.

(03) Ajoutons que la version allemande de « Un homme change de sexe » fut brûlée en place publique, lors de l'autodafé hitlérienAdolf Hitler (1889-1945), Chancellor then Führer of Germany, 1933-1945, and leader of the Nazi Party de BerlinBerlin (historical), capital of Germany. Quant à Niels HoyerNiels Hoyer (historical), pseudonym of Ernst Harthern, who composed and edited Man into Woman, dont le véritable nom est Ernst HarthernErnst Ludwig Harthern (née Jacobson) (1884–1969), German writer and editor of Man into Woman under the pseudonym, Niels Hoyer; Lili’s German friend in the narrative, il prépare actuellement un document non moins sensationnel intitulé « Un Juif s'en va en Palestine ».

(05) I. ANDREAS SPARREAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter RENCONTRE SON DESTIN

(06) La scène a lieu à ParisParis (historical), capital of France, dans le faubourg Saint-GermainQuartier Saint Germain (historical), also known as the Latin Quarter (see D1), section of Paris, par une soirée de février 1930. Dans une rue tranquille qui abrite un majestueux palais, se trouve un petit restaurant fréquenté par des étrangers, et surtout par des artistes.

(07) Ce soir-là, un couple de peintres danois, AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter et Grete SparreGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator, y avaient retrouvé leur ami italien, Ernesto RossiniErnesto Rossini (fictional), modeled on Eric Allatini (1886–1943), friend of the Wegeners; married to Hélène Allatini, et son élégante jeune femme française, ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques. Les amis ne s'étaient pas revus depuis plusieurs années. Un couple avait voyagé dans le Nord, l'autre dans le Midi de l'EuropeEurope (historical), a continent in the Northern Hemisphere.

(08) « Skaal! » s'écria AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter, selon la bonne vieille coutume nordique et levant son verre:

(09) —Ce vin, mes enfants, est pour l'âme ce que le soleil alpin est pour le corps...

(10) GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator et ErnestoErnesto Rossini (fictional), modeled on Eric Allatini (1886–1943), friend of the Wegeners; married to Hélène Allatini échangèrent leurs impressions de voyage: promenades à travers les musées, randonnées dans les allées crapuleuses de CadixCádiz (historical), port city in Spain et les ruelles d'Anvers, explorations des bazars balkaniques et des échoppes de marins de HambourgHamburg (historical), city in Germany ou d'AmsterdamAmsterdam (historical), capital of the Netherlands... Chacun voulait en raconter plus long que l'autre, et tous deux étaient absolument absorbés par leur sujet, tandis qu'un enthousiasme d'artiste brillait dans leurs yeux. Cependant, AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter se penchait attentif et ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques lui murmurait à l'oreille le dernier potin amusant, ou scandaleux de RomeRome (historical), capital of Italy et de MadridMadrid (historical), capital of Spain.

(11) — Ne buvez-vous pas un peu trop, AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter? demanda brusquement ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques... Elle s'était aperçue de l'excitation nerveuse de son compagnon :

(12) « Vous voulez done jouer à l'homme bien portant ce soir? »

(13) ErnestoErnesto Rossini (fictional), modeled on Eric Allatini (1886–1943), friend of the Wegeners; married to Hélène Allatini et GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator surprirent les paroles d'ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques. GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator lança un regard à AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter. ErnestoErnesto Rossini (fictional), modeled on Eric Allatini (1886–1943), friend of the Wegeners; married to Hélène Allatini prit la main de son amiAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter.

(14) LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 vous tourmente-t-elle de nouveau? demanda-t-il, plein de sollicitude.

(15) — Vous l'avez dit, ErnestoErnesto Rossini (fictional), modeled on Eric Allatini (1886–1943), friend of the Wegeners; married to Hélène Allatini, répondit AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter très sérieusement: eet état devient intolérable. LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 n'est plus satisfaite de partager mon existence. Elle veut avoir une existence à part. Je ne sais si vous me comprenez... Moi, je ne suis plus bon à rien, je ne puis plus rien faire. LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 le sait depuis longtemps. Voilà où nous en sommes. Par conséquent, elle se révolte plus énergiquement de jour en jour. Je suis un homme fini... Mais plus un mot. Buvons! buvons ce doux Asti pour faire plaisir à ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques.

(16) — Bravo! s'écria ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques, sans détacher son regard d'AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter qui se leva d'un mouvement las et sa dirigea vers le bar.

(17) Dites-moi vite, murmura ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques, en se tournant vers GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator, comment va votre mariAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter? Je le trouve de plus en plus fantastique, hors du monde, étrange...

(18) Le sourire disparut du visage de GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator:

(19) — Il n'a jamais été plus mal!

(20) ErnestoErnesto Rossini (fictional), modeled on Eric Allatini (1886–1943), friend of the Wegeners; married to Hélène Allatini et ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques regardaient leur amie en silence :

(21) — J'ai presque perdu tout espoir de le sauver, reprit doucement la jeune femmeGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator, à moins d'un miracle....

(22) ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques l'interrompit:

(23) Ecoutez, vous avez parlé de miracle... (GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator lança à son amieElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques un regard interrogateur) Eh bien! oui, écoutez-moi bien. Un de nos très grands amisProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist se trouve à ParisParis (historical), capital of France. Il vient de DresdeDresden (historical), city in Germany. C'est un gynécologues. Il m'ai téléphoné ce matin quelques minutes après AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter. Et, tout de suite, j'ai pensé: si quelque'un peut aider AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter, c'est bien docteurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist de DresdeDresden (historical), city in Germany... Mais, l'affaire est urgente, car il retourne en AllemagneGermany is a western European country whose capital is Berlin. demain dans l'après-midi. Je prendrai un rendez-vous dès ce soir.

(24) GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator fit un geste las de la main:

(25) — Chére ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques, c'est inutile. AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter ne veut plus voir de docteur.

(26) ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques saisit la main de son amieGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator:

(27) GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator chère, il ne faut pas me contredire. Cette fois, vous allez obéir. J'irai chez le docteurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist ce soir. Je sais qu'il est capable de m'aider.

(28) GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator alluma une cigarette, lança un nuage de fumée bleue, qu'elle fixa d'un regard vide. Puis elle dit lentement, d'un ton lent et distinct:

(29) — C'est bien, ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques. Va trouver ton médecin allemandProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist, et je persuaderai AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter de passer te voir dans la matinée.

(30) A ce moment-là, AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter reparut, tenant, comme un butin, deux bouteilles d'Asti.

(31) Lorsque, quelques heures plus tard GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator et AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter longèrent l'avenue qui se trouvait non loin de leur studio, la jeune femmeGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator rendit compte, d'avord timidement, puis avec énergie, de sa conversation avec ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques. AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter était hors de lui. Il s'arrêta au milieu de la rue, il déclara qu'il refusait de se faire examiner par un carabin, fût-il allemand, français ou peau-rouge. C'en était fait à jamais de ces sangsues.

(32) AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter était malade depuis de longues années. D'innombrables médecins et spécialistes l'avaient examiné, sans résultat. A présent il était épuisé. Sa vie n'était qu'un tourment infernal.

(33) Personne ne comprenait son mal. En effet, ses souffrances étaient bien étranges. Un spécialiste de VersaillesVersailles (historical), a royal palace outside Paris avait, sans autres détours, déclaré, qu'il était un sujet hystérique; pour le reste, il était normalement constitué, et n'avait qu'à se comporter raisonnablement pour retrouver la santé. Selon lui, tout ce qui manquait à ce patient, c'était la conviction qu'il était sain et normal.

(34) Un jeune docteur, également de VersaillesVersailles (historical), a royal palace outside Paris, avait bien déclaré, « que tout ne semblait pas parfaitement à sa place »..., mais il avait mis AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter à la porte... Un radiologue entreprit un traitement énergique et avait failli le tuer. Puis, un jour, le diagnostic d'une personnalité de VienneVienna (historical), a city in Austria, homme au tempérament quelque peu mystique, et ami de SteinachEugen Steinach (1861–1944), an Austrian physician who pioneered gonadal transplants and early theorized the existence of hormones, avait indiqué la bonne direction: « Seul, un médecin hardi et courageux pourrait vous aider, s'était-il écrie: mais où le trouver de nos jours! »

(35) Alors, AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter reprit courage, et alla voir des chirurgiens. Mais l'un répondit qu'il n'avait jamais pratiqué « la chirurgie esthéthique », l'autre traita AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter de fou. Et, sans doute, la majorité des hommes aurait partagé l'avis de ce praticien. Car AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter était persuadé qu'il n'était pas seulement un homme, mais aussi une femme.

(36) A la suite de ces déconvenues, le jeune peintreAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter jura qu'il n'irait plus jamais voir de médecin. Il avait d'ailleurs résolu d'en finir pour tout de bon. Il avait fixé la date suprême au premier mai. Le printemps est une époque dangereuse pour ceux qui sont las et souffrants.

(37) Il avait réfléchi à tout, même au mode de sa disparition. Celà devait être comme un acte d'obéissance polie envers la nature. A présent, on était en février. Mars, avril, seraient des mois d'expectative... Il se sentait calme.

(38) GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator connaissait ses pensées mélancoliques. Et, pourtant, elle se disait que tout ce qu'elle pourrait suggérer en guise de nouvel espoir, paraitrait bien futile. Tant de choses les liaient l'un à l'autre, tant de luttes, tant de souvenirs joyeux ou tristes, et — surtout, peut-être LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931. Car ce jeune homme, peintre de grand talentAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter, dont les tableaux causaient aux amateurs d'art une impression vive et troublante — était, en réalité, deux individus séparés : un homme — AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter, et une jeune fille — LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931. On pourrait les appeler deux jumeaux ayant pris, en même temps, possession de même corps.

(39) Leurs caractères étaient totalement différents.

(40) ...Peu à peu, LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 avait pris un tel ascendant sur AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter, que l'on pouvait la retrouver en lui, aux heures mêmes où elle semblait s'être retirée. Mais, le contraire n'arrivait jamais. LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 était joyeuse et respirait toute la fraîcheur de la jeunesse.

(41) Elle était devenue le modèle préféré de GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator. LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 transparaissait dans ses meilleures toiles. Oui, GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator se sentait la protectrice de cette insouciante et faible LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931. Et AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter se sentait, lui, le protecteur de l'une et de l'autre. Son ultime espoir était de mourir, afin que LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 puisse s'éveiller à une nouvelle vie.

(42) Le lendemain matin, GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator parla doucement à son mariAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter. Elle lui démontra, sans insister, qu'il devait rendre visite à ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques, n'était-ce que par simple devoir de courtoisie. Une fois chez elle, il lui serait facile de trouver une excuse pour se dérober à l'expédition chez le médecin allemandProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist.

(43) Une heure plus tard, AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter était en route pour PassyPassy (historical), an upscale neighborhood in Paris, home of many avant-garde artists in the 1920s, où habitait ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques. A midi très précise, leur voiture, stoppait devant la maison où le professeurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist était descendu.

(44) La porte s'ouvrit, et un domestique les accueillit, mais, avant qu'il n'ait eu le temps de les annoncer, un monsieur maigre et élancéProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist s'avança à leur rencontre. Une redingote bleu-foncé soulignait l'austére élégance de son extérieur et lui prêtait un air quasi-militaire.

(45) Lorsque AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter essaya plus tard d'évoquer les traits de cet homme, son esprit demeurait comme vide. Mais les yeux bleus, profondément enfoncés dans les orbites, — ces yeux qui étaient à la fois sombres et lumineux, irradiaient un charme étrange, captivant.

(46) C'était Werner KreutzProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist.

(47) Le cœur d'AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter se mit à battre très vite.

(48) Il écoutait comme danse un songe..., la jeune femmeElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques expliquait au professeurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist le cas d'AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter et sa douloureuse histoire, en jetant, de temps en temps, comme par hasard, un regard rapide et affectueux à son camaradeAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter.

(49) AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter ne pensait à rien, n'était conscient de rien, sauf de la voix de docteurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist. On eût dit qu'il était sous l'empire d'un charme, — le charme de cette voix. Elle ressemblait aux yeux du docteurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist; elle aussi, était à la fois sombre et claire. Les yeux et la voix... ils paraissaient pénétrer jusqu'aux tréfonds de l'âme.

(50) Et que lui dirait-elle, cette voix? quel message ces yeux lui réservaient-ils? Une sentence de mort?... pouvait-il vraiment s'attendre à autre chose, espérer quoi que ce soit? Etait-il venu ici dans un but bien défini?

(51) Le professeurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist se tenait devant lui, sans presque le regarder, et ne lui adressa que quelques brèves paroles. AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter le suivit dans une chambre où on lui dit de se déshabiller. Il voulut parler, chercha ses mots...

(52) Inutile de me donner des explications, Monsieur, l'interrompit le ProfesseurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist sur un ton courtois.

(53) — Vous avez mal ici et là également, n'est-ce pas?...

(54) Une surprise, qui ressemblait à de la terreur, s'était emparée de lui. Comment cet homme étrangeProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist pouvait-il savoir à quels endroits ses souffrances étaient localisées?

(55) Et cet étonnement se transforma en stupeur, lorsque le professeurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist, auquel ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques avait remis un paquet de photographies de « LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 » (1)*See mouse-over., tira les protraits de l'enveloppe et les disposa sure table, selon les dates indiquées au verso, qu'il n'avait pas eu le temps d'examiner.

(56) — Nous voyons ici, le développement clairement indiqué, dit-il simplement. AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter ne fit aucun signe. J'apprends, reprit le docteurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist, qu'un radiologue vous a traité antérieurement un examen chimique et microscopique, il est impossible de dire s'il a exercé une influence nocive sur les glandes génitales, et peut-être sur les ovaires, si ils existent... Un examen ultérieur l'etablira.

(57) AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter dans un cri révéla son angoisse:

(58) — Alors... Je suis done une femme?

(59) Il n'en put dire plus. Son émotion lui coupait le souffle. Tout tournait autour de lui.

(60) — C'est extrêmement probable, répondit le professeurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist, imperturbable et positif. Et pourtant le son de sa voix semblait légèrement voilé, très doux et discret:

(61) « Oui, je crois que vous possédez à la fois des organes masculins et féminins, et que ni les uns, ni les autres n'ont eu de place suffisante pour se développer... Il est fort heureux que vous ayez une conscience féminine ainsi caractérisée. C'est pour cette raison précisément que je crois pouvoir vous aider.

(62) AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter porta sa main à son cœur. Il se pencha en avant, afin de ne pas perdre une seule parole qui tombait de la bouche de cet homme extraordinaireProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist. Il le regardait fixement, afin de trouver dans ses yeux la confirmation de ses mots.

(63) — Eh bien, professeurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist, que suis-je?... Quoi?...

(64) Le professeurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist se leva, fit les cent pas dans chambre comme pour médier la question, puis il se tourna vers AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter. Et de nouveau, le jeune hommeAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter but ses paroles.

(65) — Venez me voir en AllemagneGermany is a western European country whose capital is Berlin.. J'espère pouvoir vous donner une nouvelle vie et une nouvelle jeunesse.

(66) AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter se leva, fit un effort pour parler.

(67) — Alors, ce sera LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 qui survivra?

(68) — Oui, fit Werner KreutzProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist, je vais vous opérer... Cette opération supprimera les obstacles qui naquirent au moment de votre puberté. Mais tout d'abord vous devez subir plusieurs traitements préliminaires à BerlinBerlin (historical), capital of Germany. Plus tard, vous viendrez chez moi, à DresdeDresden (historical), city in Germany.

(69) Ces mots marquèrent la fin de cette conversation si grave, on peut dire, fatale, entre l'étrangerProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist et AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter, tandis que le ProfesseurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist ramenait ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques dans la chambre de consultation.

(70) Le docteurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist s'écarta d'un air pensif, puis brusquement il fixa tour à tour le jeune hommeAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter et la jeune femmeElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques: — Puis-je parler ouvertement? demanda-t-il.

(71) — Je vous en prie, répondit AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter, je n'ai pas de secrets pour ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques.

(72) — Eh bien, commença le ProfesseurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist, j'apprends que vous êtes marié. Votre mariage... peut-être pourrez-vous m'en dire quelque chose, parce que en qualité de médecin... en tout cas...

(73) Chacun d'eux eut l'impression que la conversation prenait un tour fantastique, bien que la question fût la plus naturelle du monde.

(74) — Je ferais peut-être mieux de vous laisser, suggéra ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques.

(75) AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter la saisit le bras: Non, non, ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques, restez.

(76) Le ProfesseurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist vint à leur secours, et son sourire fut comme une délivrance: — Quelle est l'attitude par exemple de... je crois que je vous ai entendu prononcer le nom de LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931... Eh bien, oui, de LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 à l'égard des autres hommes?

(77) ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques se mit à rire: — C'est extraordinaire à quel point LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 attire le sexe fort!

(78) AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter voulut l'interrompre, mais le ProfesseurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist s'était mis, mui aussi, à rire de bon cœur:

(79) — Laissez parler MadameElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques, je vous en prie.

(80) Et AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter fut bien obligé d'écouter, tandis qu'elle reprenait:

(81) — J'ai pu le constater de mes propres yeux, au cours de bal travestis.

(82) Le ProfesseurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist redevint sérieux: — Ce que vous venez de me dire, MadameElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques, s'accorde avec l'image qui s'est formée dans mon esprit... Pour le reste, l'operation qui s'impose, créera — d'auntant plus qu'il s'agit de la première intervention chirurgicale de ce genre — toute une série de situations singulières, dont l'aspect juridique n'est pas le moindre. Mais... Et à ces mots le ProfesseurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist s'approcha d'AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter et lui prit la main: — Je vous promets de ne pas abandonner LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 et de lui prêter mon soutien dans ses premiers pas dans la vie.

(83) AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter abaissa son regard sur la main de l'étrangerProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist. Il ne savait ce qu'il devait faire. Il jeta autour de lui un regard éperdu, puis lâchant la main du docteurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist, tendit ses bras vers ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques, comme pour implorer son aide...

(84) Werner KreutzProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist se tenait près de la fenêtre, fixant silencieusement la rue.

Le ProfesseurProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist dit doucement: — Je vous comprends. Je sais combien vous avez souffert.

A man changes sex

Based on authentic and scientific documents, assembled by Niels HoyerNiels Hoyer (historical), pseudonym of Ernst Harthern, who composed and edited Man into Woman

(01) If we analyze the strange case of Lili ElbeLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931, that Niels HoyerNiels Hoyer (historical), pseudonym of Ernst Harthern, who composed and edited Man into Woman kindly shared with the readers of Voilà, if we try to find a scientific definition for this extraordinary story, we could say that it is about one of the intersexuals of whom Dr. Magnus HirschfeldMagnus Hirschfeld (1868–1935), a German physician and one of the most influential sexologists of the time; Einar Wegener was examined at his Institute in March 1930 talked to us last year. Admittedly, the public has only an extremely vague idea about these intermediary beings with a complex physical structure and sensitivity, whom a SteinachEugen Steinach (1861–1944), an Austrian physician who pioneered gonadal transplants and early theorized the existence of hormones or a HirschfeldMagnus Hirschfeld (1868–1935), a German physician and one of the most influential sexologists of the time; Einar Wegener was examined at his Institute in March 1930 have classified long ago, after having meticulously studied their morphology and their psychological dispositions.

(02) The story of the Danish painter Andreas SparreAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter is all the more remarkable, since in his case it’s about double reproductive organs and a double personality. Andreas SparreAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter, a young man who seemed absolutely normal, who was married and very happy with his conjugal life, was LITERALLY POSSESSED BY HIS FEMININE SELF, TO WHOM HE ATTRIBUTED A DISTINCT PERSONALITY AND WHOM HE NAMED LILILili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931. We will see how this semi-imaginary, semi-real being was born in the artist studios and the costume parties. We will find out also how AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter’s wifeGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator, his intelligent and devoted confidant, powerless witness to her husbandAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter’s suffering and anguish, encouraged the final metamorphosis, which she accepted as the only way to save him. With the help of successive surgeries, the German ProfessorKurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist who performed all but the first of four surgeries on Lili Elvenes; director of the Women’s Clinic in Dresden (Staatliche Frauenklinik) from 1925 to 1948 whom HoyerNiels Hoyer (historical), pseudonym of Ernst Harthern, who composed and edited Man into Woman names in his story Werner KreutzProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist "FREED LILILili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931" of her masculine envelope. The metamorphosis seemed to have fully succeeded, and Lili ElbeLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931, a fresh and radiant young woman, returned to DenmarkDenmark is a Scandinavian country in northern Europe whose capital is Copenhagen., where she obtained a new civil status. With their mutual agreement, the divorce was pronounced, and, Grete SparreGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator married an Italian friendRidolfo Feruzzi (fictional), modeled on Fernando Porta (b. 1897), Gerda Wegener’s second husband. However, the new being, born at the women’s clinicMunicipal Women’s Clinic (fictional), modeled on Staatliche Frauenklinik in Dresden, directed by Professor Kurt Warnekros at the time of DresdenDresden (historical), city in Germany, couldn’t be content with the results. The unfettered instinct urged LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 imperiously to complete her destiny in becoming a mother. A loyal friendClaude Lejeune (fictional), modeled on Claude Prévost, friend of Lili’s whom Gerda Wegener painted in 1923 offers to marry her. Before agreeing, LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 returns to DresdenDresden (historical), city in Germany where she undergoes another surgery, after which she dies, in September 1931. Before her death, she confides her life story to Niels HoyerNiels Hoyer (historical), pseudonym of Ernst Harthern, who composed and edited Man into Woman, who undertakes to publish it and to give fictional names to the persons whom he will describe. But we are authorized to say that Andreas SparreAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter’s real name was Einar WegenerEinar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter; married to Gerda Wegener; died as Lili Elbe in Dresden, 1931, and that he was well known among the Parisian circles of painters and artists.

(03) Let’s add that the German version of "A man who changes sex" was burnt in a public plaza, during the auto-da-fé ordered by HitlerAdolf Hitler (1889-1945), Chancellor then Führer of Germany, 1933-1945, and leader of the Nazi Party in BerlinBerlin (historical), capital of Germany. As to Niels HoyerNiels Hoyer (historical), pseudonym of Ernst Harthern, who composed and edited Man into Woman, whose real name is Ernst HarthernErnst Ludwig Harthern (née Jacobson) (1884–1969), German writer and editor of Man into Woman under the pseudonym, Niels Hoyer; Lili’s German friend in the narrative, he is preparing a no less sensational document, titled "A Jew goes to Palestine".

(05) I. ANDREAS SPARREAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter MEETS HIS DESTINY

(06) The scene takes place in ParisParis (historical), capital of France, in the suburb of Saint-GermainQuartier Saint Germain (historical), also known as the Latin Quarter (see D1), section of Paris, on a 1930 February evening. On a quiet street that shelters a majestic palace, there is a small restaurant where foreigners and especially artists spend time.

(07) That evening, a couple of Danish painters, AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter and Grete SparreGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator, had met there their Italian friend, Ernesto RossiniErnesto Rossini (fictional), modeled on Eric Allatini (1886–1943), friend of the Wegeners; married to Hélène Allatini, and his elegant French wife, ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques. The friends hadn’t seen each other for a few years. A couple had travelled to the North, the other, to the South of EuropeEurope (historical), a continent in the Northern Hemisphere.

(08) "Skaal!" exclaimed AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter, as is the old Nordic custom, and raised his glass:

(09) — This wine, children, is to the soul what the sun is to the body...

(10) GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator and ErnestoErnesto Rossini (fictional), modeled on Eric Allatini (1886–1943), friend of the Wegeners; married to Hélène Allatini exchanged their travel impressions: walks through museums, rambles in the foul alleys of CadizCádiz (historical), port city in Spain and the thoroughfares of Anvers, Balkanic bazaars and sea boutiques of HamburgHamburg (historical), city in Germany or AmsterdamAmsterdam (historical), capital of the Netherlands carefully searched... Each wanted to say more than the other and both were so absorbed by the subject, that their eyes were shining with the enthusiasm of an artist. However, AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter leaned toward ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques, interested in the last amusing gossip from RomeRome (historical), capital of Italy or MadridMadrid (historical), capital of Spain, that she whispered in his ear.

(11) — Don’t you drink a little too much, AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter? ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques asked suddenly... She had realized the nervous agitation of her companion:

(12) "You want to pretend this evening that you are in good health?"

(13) ErnestoErnesto Rossini (fictional), modeled on Eric Allatini (1886–1943), friend of the Wegeners; married to Hélène Allatini and GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator heard ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques’s words. GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator glanced at AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter. ErnestoErnesto Rossini (fictional), modeled on Eric Allatini (1886–1943), friend of the Wegeners; married to Hélène Allatini seized his friendAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter’s hand.

(14) — Does LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 trouble you again? he asked full of concern.

(15) — You said it, ErnestoErnesto Rossini (fictional), modeled on Eric Allatini (1886–1943), friend of the Wegeners; married to Hélène Allatini, answered AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter in earnest: this situation becomes unbearable. LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 is no longer content to share my existence. She wants to have a separate life. I don’t know if you understand me... I am no good for anything any longer, I can’t do anything anymore. LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 has known it for quite a while. This is where we are. Consequently, she becomes more rebellious with each passing day. It’s over for me... I don’t want to hear a word. Let’s drink! Let’s drink this sweet Asti, to please ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques.

(16) — Bravo! exclaimed ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques without taking her eyes off AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter who got up wearily and headed toward the bar.

(17) — Tell me quickly, whispered ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques turning to GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator, how is your husbandAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter doing? I find him increasingly peculiar, out of this world, strange...

(18) The smile left GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator’s face:

(19) He’s never been sicker!

(20) ErnestoErnesto Rossini (fictional), modeled on Eric Allatini (1886–1943), friend of the Wegeners; married to Hélène Allatini and ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques looked quietly at her:

(21) I’ve lost almost all hope for his recovery, resumed the young womanGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator softly, except a miracle...

(22) ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques interrupted her:

(23) — Listen, you talk about a miracle... (GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator glanced at her friendElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques with an inquiring look) Well, now listen carefully. A very good friend of oursProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist is in ParisParis (historical), capital of France. He comes from DresdenDresden (historical), city in Germany. He’s a gynecologist. He called me this morning, a few minutes after AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter. And, at once, I thought: if anyone can help AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter, it’s the DresdenDresden (historical), city in Germany doctorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist... But this is urgent, because tomorrow afternoon, he returns to GermanyGermany is a western European country whose capital is Berlin.. I will set an appointment this evening.

(24) GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator made a discouraged gesture:

(25) — Dear ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques, it’s useless. AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter doesn’t want to see doctors anymore.

(26) ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques seized the hand of her friendGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator.

(27) GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator, darling, do not contradict me. This time, you are going to obey. Tonight, I will go to the doctorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist. I know he can help me.

(28) GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator lit a cigarette, and sent up a cloud of blue smoke that she stared at with a vacant look. Then she said slowly, with a clear voice:

(29) — Fine, ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques. Go find your German doctorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist and I will persuade AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter to come see you in the morning.

(30) At that moment, AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter reappeared holding the booty: two bottles of Asti.

(31) When, a few hours later, GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator and AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter were walking along the avenue not far from their studio, the young womanGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator related to him, timidly at the beginning, then enthusiastically, her conversation with ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques. AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter turned frantic. He stopped in the middle of the road, stated that he refused to let an undertaker examine him, be it German, French or Red Skin. He was done with these leeches.

(32) AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter had been sick for many years. Countless doctors and specialists had examined him with no result. Presently, he was exhausted. His life was a hellish torment.

(33) Nobody understood his illness. In fact, his suffering was very strange. A specialist from VersaillesVersailles (historical), a royal palace outside Paris straightforwardly declared him a hysterical subject; other than that, he had a normal constitution, all he had to do was to behave reasonably in order to regain his health. According to him, all that this patient lacked was the conviction that he was sane and normal.

(34) A young doctor, also from VersaillesVersailles (historical), a royal palace outside Paris, had even declared "that not everything seemed to be perfectly alright"..., but he showed AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter the door... A radiologist energetically began a treatment and nearly killed him. Then, one day, the diagnosis of a personality from ViennaVienna (historical), a city in Austria, a man with a temperament almost mystic, a friend of SteinachEugen Steinach (1861–1944), an Austrian physician who pioneered gonadal transplants and early theorized the existence of hormones, had pointed in the right direction: "Only a daring and courageous doctor could help you," he exclaimed, "but where to find him nowadays!"

(35) Afterwards, AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter found the strength to go see some surgeons. But one told him that he never performed "esthetic surgery", another called AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter crazy. And, doubtlessly, most men would have shared the opinion of this practitioner. Because AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter was convinced that he wasn’t only a man, but also a woman.

(36) After these disappointments, the young painterAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter swore that he would never go to see a doctor again. Besides, he had decided to finish with all this for good. He had set the fateful date on May first. Spring is a dangerous time for those who are weary and suffering.

(37) He had thought it all out, even of how he would disappear. It had to be like an act of polite reverence to nature. Now it was February. March, April will be months of expectation...He was feeling calm.

(38) GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator knew his melancholic thoughts. However, she told herself that anything she could suggest in order to renew his hope would appear futile. So many things bound them together, so many battles, so many memories, sad and joyful—and perhaps especially LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931. Because this young man, a painter of great talentAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter, whose paintings stirred within the art lovers a deep and poignant impression—was, in fact, two separate individuals: a man—AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter, and a young woman—LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931. We could call them two twins possessing at the same time the same body.

(39) Their characters were completely different.

(40) ...Little by little, LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 had taken such control over AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter, that she could be found in him even during the moments when it seemed that she had withdrawn. But the opposite never happened. LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 was joyful and she exuded all the freshness of youth.

(41) She had become GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator’s favorite model. LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 shone through in her best paintings. Yes, GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator felt she was the protector of this carefree and fragile LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931. And AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter felt himself the protector of them both. His last hope was to die, so that LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 could awake to a new life.

(42) The next morning, GreteGrete Sparre (fictional), modeled on Gerda Wegener (1885-1940), an art deco painter and illustrator talked gently to her husbandAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter. She explained to him, without insisting, that he should visit ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques, even if only out of courtesy. Once there, he should find it easy to come up with an excuse to avoid the trip to the German doctorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist.

(43) An hour later, AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter was on his way to PassyPassy (historical), an upscale neighborhood in Paris, home of many avant-garde artists in the 1920s, where ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques lived. Precisely at noon, their car, stopped in front of the house where the ProfessorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist was staying.

(44) The door opened, and a servant welcomed them, but before he had time to announce them, a tall and slender gentlemanProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist came out to greet them. A dark blue frock coat emphasized the austere elegance of his appearance and gave him an almost military air.

(45) When AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter later tried to evoke the features of this man, his mind remained as though empty. But the very deep set, blue eyes—these eyes at once dark and bright shone with a strange, captivating charm.

(46) It was Werner KreutzProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist.

(47) AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter’s heart started to beat very fast.

(48) He listened as if in a dream..., the young womanElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques explained to the doctorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter’s case and his painful history, casting at times, as if by chance, a brief and affectionate glance at her friendAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter.

(49) AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter wasn’t thinking of anything, wasn’t aware of anything except the voice of the doctorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist, as if he was under a spell—the spell of this voice. It resembled the doctorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist’s eyes; it too was at once dark and bright. The eyes and the voice... they seemed to pierce deeply into the soul.

(50) And what would this voice tell him? what did these eyes have in store for him? A death sentence?... could he really expect anything else, hope for anything? Did he come here with a well-defined aim?

(51) The professorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist -@Editor: PLC stood in front of him, almost without looking at him, and addressed him only in a few short instances. AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter followed him into a room where he was told to undress. He wanted to talk, he searched for words...

(52) Sir, it is useless to give me explanations, the ProfessorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist interrupted him with a courteous tone.

(53) — It hurts you here, and there and also there, doesn’t it?...

(54) A surprise similar to terror seized him. How could this strange manProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist know the places where he hurt?

(55) And this awe turned into stupor, when the professorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist, to whom ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques gave a bunch of LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931’s photos,1*See mouse-over. took the portraits out of the envelope and arranged them on the table, according to the dates mentioned on the verso, that he didn’t have time to examine.

(56) — We see here, the development clearly marked out, he said simply. AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter stood still. I understand, the doctorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist continued, that a radiologist has X-rayed you; but, without a previous chemical and microscopic examination, it is impossible to say if he has exerted a harmful influence on the genital glands, and perhaps on the ovaries, if they exist... A subsequent examination will establish this.

(57) With a cry, AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter revealed his anguish.

(58) — But... Am I then a woman?

(59) He couldn’t continue. The emotion took his breath away. Everything spun around him.

(60) — It’s highly probable, the professorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist answered with calm and confidence. Yet his voice sounded veiled, very sweet and discreet:

(61) "Yes, I believe that you have both the masculine and feminine organs and that neither one, nor the other had enough room to develop... It is fortunate that you have such a characteristically feminine consciousness. It is precisely for this reason that I think I am able to help you.

(62) AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter put his hand on his heart. He leaned forward, so as not to lose one word coming out of the mouth of this extraordinary manProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist. He looked at him intently, in order to find in his eyes the confirmation of his words.

(63) — Then, professorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist, what am I?... What?

(64) The professorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist stood up, paced the room up and down as if meditating on the question, then he turned to AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter. And again, the young manAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter drank in his words.

(65) —Come see me in GermanyGermany is a western European country whose capital is Berlin.. I hope I shall be able to give you a new life and a new youth.

(66) AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter stood up, made an effort to speak.

(67) — Then, will it be LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 who will survive?

(68) — Yes, said Werner KreutzProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist, I will operate on you... This surgery will suppress the obstacles born at the time of your puberty. But first you must undertake several preliminary treatments in BerlinBerlin (historical), capital of Germany. Afterwards, you will return to me, in DresdenDresden (historical), city in Germany.

(69) These words marked the end of this conversation so serious, fatal we could say, between the strangerProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist and AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter, while the ProfessorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist brought ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques back into the consulting room.

(70) The doctorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist stepped away thoughtfully, then he suddenly fixed his eyes on the young manAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter and then the young womanElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques: - Can I speak openly? he asked.

(71) — Please do, answered AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter, I do not keep secrets from ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques.

(72) — Well, the ProfessorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist began, I understand that you are married. Your marriage... maybe you could tell me a bit about it, because as a doctor... in any case...

(73) Each of them had the feeling that the conversation took a strange turn, though it was the most natural question.

(74) — Perhaps I should leave you alone, suggested ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques.

(75) AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter grabbed her arm: No, no, ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques, stay.

(76) The ProfessorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist came to their rescue, and his smile brought relief. – What is the attitude for instance of... I think I heard you uttering the name LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931... well, yes, of LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 towards other men?

(77) ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques began to laugh. – It is extraordinary the degree to which LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 attracts the stronger sex -@Editor: PLC!

(78) AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter wanted to interrupt her, but the ProfessorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist too started to laugh heartily:

(79) — Please, allow the ladyElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques to talk.

(80) And AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter had to listen, while she continued:

(81) — I have seen it myself, during the costume parties.

(82) The ProfessorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist became serious again. – What you have just told me, MadamElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques, agrees with the image formed in my mind... For the rest, the surgery that is imperative will create — all the more since it is the first surgical intervention of this kind—an entire series of uncommon situations, among which the legal aspect is not the least. But... and at these words, the ProfessorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist came close to AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter and took his hand: - I promise you to not abandon LiliLili Elbe (fictional and historical), legal name Lili Ilse Elvenes; born Einar Wegener (1882), died in Dresden, 1931 and to lend her my support during her first steps in life.

(83) AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter lowered his gaze to the strangerProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist’s hand. He didn’t know what to do. He cast a distraught glance around him, then letting go of the doctorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist’s hand, he stretched his arms toward ElenaElena Rossini (fictional), modeled on Hélène Kann Allatini (1887-1943), friend of the Wegeners; author of Mosaiques, as if imploring her help...

(84) Werner KreutzProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist stood near the window, staring quietly at the street. AndreasAndreas Sparre (fictional), modeled on Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener (b. 1882), a Danish painter came up to him crying. The ProfessorProfessor Werner Kreutz (fictional), modelled on Kurt Warnekros (1882–1949), a German gynecologist said softly: — I understand you. I know how much you have suffered.
