TROIANESCU, Octavio

Bio in Polski:
http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Octavi...

<Cernauti, Romania> in the cg.bio is a little "treasure":

<Czerniowce, Cernăuți, Tschernowitz, Tscherniwzi, Chernitvtsi, ...>

In 1916, Octavio's date of birth, the city was part of "Austria-Hungary" and when he was two years old, the Empire dissolved in 1918*, the city and its surrounding area became a part of the "Kingdom of Romania" (1881-1947). In 1940, Red Army occupied the area and it subsequently became a part of the Ukrainian SSR of the Soviet Union. Romania liberated the city and much of southern Ukraine in 1941 as part of the Axis attack on the Soviet Union during World War II. When Axis forces were driven out by the Red Army, the city was occupied once again, and rejoined the Ukrainian SSR in 1944. At a age of thirty years <Octavio Troianescu> has already "seen" (I guess he and his family soon headed towards the heartland) massive cultural upheaval .... he shared that experience with a whole generation.

Since 1991, Chernitvtsi has been a part of independent western Ukraine located in the historic Northern Bukovyna region.

According to the latest All-Ukrainian population census in 2001, the population of Chernivtsi was approximately 236,700 people of 65 nationalities. Among them 4.4% Romanians. As a cultural and architectural center, Chernivtsi was dubbed as Little Vienna, Jerusalem upon the Prut and the European Alexandria!

  FSR: <moronovich> Not to worry! The "death at 64" thing only applies to players who are at least IMs.

  perfidious: <moronovich> and <FSR> Guess we can breathe a large sigh of relief that we are merely competent players and not titled, else that number of doom might well rise to haunt us.
