|Aug-13-06|| ||Knight13: And I soon learned that he died when he was 99 years, 364 days, 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds old.|
|Aug-13-09|| ||Phony Benoni: Probably his two best known games are Bronstein vs E Rojahn, 1956 and E Rojahn vs M Czerniak, 1939. The loss to Bronstein is a world-famous game of some theoretical importance, while the draw with Czerniak is ... well, look at it yourself.|

|Sep-16-10|| ||technical draw: Ok what's this 100 years old thing? According to the bio above he died in 1977.|
|Sep-17-10|| ||whiteshark: <historical draw> I smell a biographers conspiracy here.|
|Mar-05-11|| ||Nilsson: This is a little bit mysterious. I remember I saw comment about this game in TFS.
( Tidskrift för Schack ) After the olympiad in Moscow.(1956)
If you check position after the logical move 9.Qd4 ECO C58 1. comment nr.1 page 309, they respond to the game Agrinskij - Kuznecov, SSSR 1961, and no comments to this Bronstein-Rojahn game. Euwe recommends 9..Nd6 instead of 9..Nb6
Stockfish (today) agree.( Black is better)I guess that is the explanation why we don´t see this variation anymore.

According to Norwegian sources he died in 1964.
|Apr-09-12|| ||Tabanus: Here is a picture from the olympiad in Buenos Aires 1939: http://www.ara.org.ar/chs/ajedrez/p.... Rojahn is standing to the right, and I believe Senorita Ruth Bloch Nakkerud is smiling at him? |
From http://www.nackerud.org/nakkerud_fa... I get the impression that the two later married.
|Apr-09-12|| ||Tabanus: <According to Norwegian sources he died in 1964.> Are you sure? I cannot find him.|
... OK http://sjakkselskapet.no/hist/TJN/T... has 1964.
