|Aug-21-06|| ||Mibelz: Born Polish (near Lodz), Teodor Regedziński was of German origin as his father.|
He was a member of Polish team at four Chess Olympiads (1928, 1933, 1937, 1939) and unofficial Olympiad at Munich 1936.
During the WWII, he had played - as Theodore Reger - in a number of chess tournaments, including the 7th German Championship at Bad Oeynhausen 1940, where he finished 10th.
Because of his linguistic skills (Regedzinski spoke Polish, German, Russian, English and French), he was appointed by the German Army as an interpreter.

Excerpt: <As he came back to occupied Poland [after the 1939 Chess Olympiad; karpova] he decided to sign a volkslist, thus deeding over to his German roots and swearing off loyalty to Poland, which was considered to be a capital crime among Polish people. As Theodore Reger he had played in a number of chess tournaments under Nazi patronage, including 7th German Championship in Bad Oeynhausen in 1940, where he finished 10th. In 1941 he played in the Generalgouvernement Championship in Cracow, won by Alekhine. Generalgouvernement was allocated part of pre-war Poland's territory to receive a smitch of autonomy, still under strict Nazi control anyway. Because of his linguistic skills (he spoke Polish, German, Russian, English and French) he was appointed by the German Army as an interpreter.>
