May-12-18  Telemus: A trap?

click for larger view

Here Heinicke played 24.♕h5. Martin Beheim-Schwarzbach assumed that this was a trap. Black played indeed 24.. ♘xe5? and after 25.dxe5 ♕xe3+ 26.♔h2 ♖d2 enjoyed his position.

click for larger view

27.♖c2! The point is 27.. ♗xg2 28.♖xd2 ♕xd2 29.♖d1!

click for larger view

Here 29.. ♗f3+ is best, but White is clearly better, possibly winning.

Therefore, Black played 27.. f5 and accepted the worse position in this way.

From a game Heinicke - Hirsch, Hamburg 1934, taken from "Knaurs Schachbuch" by Beheim-Schwarzbach.

  Jean Defuse: ...

... Herbert Heinicke wurde in Südamerika geboren (1905 in Brasilien) ... 1914 kehrte auch die Familie Heinicke nach Deutschland zurück. Heinicke war ein sehr starker Schachspieler und er war als Unternehmer sehr erfolgreich. Seine Firma produzierte nichtrostenden Stähle, die vor und während des Zweiten Weltkrieges besonders im deutschen U-Boot Verwendung fanden.

<Herbert Heinicke wird von seinen Zeitgenossen als strammer Nazi beschrieben.>

Auch nach dem Krieg, in dem der Hamburger SK 1943 sein Heim und seine riesige Schachbibliothek im Feuer verlor, war Heinicke noch lange und erfolgreich mit seiner Firma und im Schach aktiv. Er spielte gelegentlich in der Nationalmannschaft und war 1972 Mitbegründer der Schachabteilung von Favorite Hammonia. Heinicke starb 1988.

Während Leute wie Junge und Heinicke die Geschicke des Hamburger SK in die Hand genommen hatten, wurden die jüdischen Schachfreunde nicht nur aus den Vereinen, sondern auch aus Deutschland vertrieben oder umgebracht. Auch vor großen Namen machte man nicht halt. Der einzige deutsche Schachweltmeister Emanuel Lasker hatte Deutschland schon 1933 verlassen. Fast alle seiner Familienmitglieder starben in Konzentrationslagern. Zu den Verwandten von Emanuel Lasker gehörte auch Anita Lasker-Wallfisch...
