Apr-30-18 hemy: <In the different publications the spelling of his name in Hebrew was "קניאזר" and "קניאז׳ר;" (Kniazer and Kniajer).

Sometimes it was spelled as "קניאגר" and translated as "Kniager" (Article "Palestine championship" in "Palestine Post", April 18, 1945, p.2, the article "Notes and News" in "Palestine Post", April 11, 1945, p.2 and "Chess Results" 1951-1955, p.80) In the webpage of Israeli chess historian Avital Pilpel related to Kniazer (http://jewishchesshistory.blogspot....) in the list of "Israel's chess masters" taken from "64 Mishbatzot", Feb. 1956, p.17 the spelling is "Kniager".

According to the cemetery record, the spelling of his name on gravestone was "קניאזר", so the "Kniazer" should be correct name, as it was in most of publications.>
