  GrahamClayton: Excellent biography in German:

What caused Weissgerber's death at the relatively young age of 35?

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: The dates of birth and death should be adjusted to

* 13. Oktober 1905 in Großrosseln
† 22. Oktober 1937 in Kaiserslautern

<GrahamClayton> it says that he died during a fatal surgery (unluky outcome) ["... wo er im Alter von nur 32 Jahren am 22. Oktober 1937 <an einer unglücklich verlaufenen Operation> verstarb."]
