(born Mar-19-1904, died 1940, 36 years old) Poland

[what is this?]
Achilles Frydman was a Polish Master from the city of Lodz. In 1935 he placed 5th in the Polish championship, and in 1936 he won the Lodz championship. In 1937 he suffered a nervous breakdown while playing in the Polish championship, which forced him to withdraw from that tournament and limited his ability to participate in later events. His episodes of mental instability are often incorrectly attributed to Paulino Frydman.

In 1940 the Nazis arrested Frydman in Warsaw. He died in a concentration camp.
