May-25-08  lost in space: Normally I try to sepate privat /political things from chess. But here I have to say, that I am very happy, that Junge was able to beat Diemer.

Diemer was promoting during this dark time in Germany the special german chess - in oppsosit to the jewisch chess. He named Steinitz and Lasker vermins; there chess is - accoring to Diemer - passive, safe and craven - in oppsoite to the risky, active and brave german chess.

Even though the morality of Junge can be questioned (member of Waffen SS) - here my sympathy is on Junge's side

  dernier loup de T: We may notice that the racist hate is never associated with veritable chess genius; an other example is Franz Gutmayer; of course, i must recognize that Alekhine and Fischer (maybe Bogoljubov too?) are unpleasant exceptions; but Fischer at least was mentally ill... Lets remember too the ignominious attitude of the austrian authorities against Max Judd in 1894 if I remember well; and my opinion is we have to be thankful to the american government at this shameful time, for not surrendind, BEFORE began the dirty Dreyfus affair in France; sorry for my bad english, I am ... french... french but nor Jew nor Jewhater!... To love chess is enough for me, even, I am just a patzer, but adoring Lasker for instance as well as person and as player; what an example of great humanity, and not only chess genius... I will love Lasker until I will die; and thankful to him because all his qualities included a deep and shared love for his wife; sorry for this last point, Knigt 13, mousie, I forgive you not to like women, but only because i feel you cute; and it's not ONLY a joke...

20, anti-Semitism was something very
very frequent. It was a cultural problem
more than individual.
