|Nov-27-08|| ||Karpova: He won a small tournament in Baarn, 1940:
1. Landau 2.0/4
2-3. Euwe 1.5/4
2-3. Kmoch 1.5/4
4. Kramer 1.0/4
Landau beat Euwe and drew the other two games.
|Apr-01-10|| ||wordfunph: During the 1937 Chess Olympiad Dutch player Salo Landua fell asleep at the board after making his 11th move against Belgian player Arthur Dunkelblum. Dunkelbum sportingly shook Landau by the arm to wake him up, and suggested a draw, which Landau immediately accepted.|
happy birthday Master Landau..

|Nov-23-10|| ||brankat: Is this the same Landau who was A.Alekhine's second in the first match with Dr.Euwe, 1935? Thank You.|

|Nov-23-10|| ||brankat: <nescio> Thank You.|
I remember reading somewhere, years ago, that sometime during the match Alekhine asked S.Landau who was he really rooting for. and Landau replied something like: "Being Your second I wish You success, but being a Dutch I can't help it but hope for Euwe's victory".
|Nov-23-10|| ||nescio: <brankat> Rumour has it that in the later stages of the match Alyekkhin and Landau had some disagreement and during the last few games Alyekhin was assisted by Ernst Ludwig Klein.|
Euwe's second was his good friend Maroczy who was of course more an equal than a servant, chesswise.
|Nov-25-10|| ||brankat: <nescio> Thanks for the information.|
|Sep-08-12|| ||Karpova: Zandvoort 1934:
1. Landau 2.0
2. Koltanowski 1.5
3. Mühring 1.0
4. Prins 0.5
From page 333 of the 1934 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'
|Sep-08-12|| ||sneaky pete: 5 points in a 6 games tournament isn't very likely, unless Kmoch is the tournament director, and he wasn't on this occasion. The correct score is 1. Landau 2,5 2. Koltanowski 1,5 3/4. Mühring and Prins 1.|
Zandvoort 1934 was a weekend tournament (one game on Saturday September 15, two games on Sunday September 16). Two foreign masters were matched in the 2 top groups with 3 strong Dutch players. In the other group Lilienthal scored 3 points and the cannon fodder (Fontein, Hamming and Oskam) 2 draws each.
|Dec-16-12|| ||thomastonk: I have just uploaded some newspaper pictures of Landau. Here with Réti in 1927: http://www.pic-upload.de/view-17337..., and the others can be found on the game pages: S Landau vs Rubinstein, 1930 and Spielmann vs S Landau, 1936.|

Wonderful! Thanks much for those.
Landau could play some very smooth, elegant chess.
|Sep-21-13|| ||Zonszein: I've read on My Great Predecessors Vol. II that Euwe wrote to Alekhine (twice) requesting his help in saving Salo Landau. The letters were unanswered...|
|Sep-22-13|| ||aliejin: "his help in saving..."
In the third Reich nobody could save anyone
except for very rare events ......
Alekhine, who once protested
the execution of Pzepiorka and not having a good time,
could save lives, was a fantasy ...
|Sep-22-13|| ||Zonszein: "....nobody could save anyone.." etc
But he didn't even answer those letters!
Letters that Euwe in the other hand, had the courage to write...
|Apr-01-14|| ||Castleinthesky: It always brings me sadness when I read Landau's biography. However, I am thankful that the immortal game of chess can keep him in our memories.|
|Apr-01-14|| ||Howard: Apparently Wolf and Treybal were not, most unfortunately, the only well-known chess players of their day to perish at the hands of the Nazi's.|
|Apr-01-14|| ||RedShield: It used to be said that Landau died at Auschwitz. Anyone know what source of information was responsible for the revision?|
|Apr-01-14|| ||Refused: Wild guess from his biography.
<He was sent to a forced-labor camp in Gräditz; his wife and daughter to Auschwitz>
I assume it has to do with his family dieing in Auschwitz, and people might conclude he died there too.
|Apr-01-14|| ||RedShield: Do you understand the meaning of the word 'revision'?|
|Apr-01-14|| ||Refused: I misunderstood your post, sorry my bad.|

|Mar-23-15|| ||Stonehenge: "Their little daughter Renee <Henriette Renee, Amsterdam, 28 Nov 1938 - Auschwitz, 14 Oct 1944> was arrested in November and went to the nursery near the Dutch Theater*. There she was rescued, and via Max Euwe's house, she went to her second safehouse."|
