|Dec-06-06|| ||OJC: "Maybe he was the most talented boy of my generation. Bronstein said that we had our own Tal. He was killed in 1943."
|Dec-06-06|| ||Karpova: <The USSR also had the similar experience of a promising young player dying in WW2 as well. The player concerned was Mark Stolberg (1922-1943). Stolberg was from Rostov, and obtained the master title in 1939. Stolberg competed in the 12th USSR Championship at Moscow in 1940, finishing 13th=16th with a score of 8/19. Stolberg was competing in one of the four semi-final groups of the 13th USSR championship in 1941 when the tournaments were cancelled due to the German invasion of the USSR on the 22nd of June. Stolberg joined his combat unit, and died on the Eastern Front near Novorossiysk in 1943. David Bronstein was quoted as saying of Stolberg: "Our generation has its own Tal.">|

|Dec-31-06|| ||Karpova: <chessgames.com> something wrong with this game? I submitted it the day i made the post containing the game but it's still not in the database.|
|Dec-24-07|| ||whiteshark: Theres a book (in Russian) <Meteory> (The Meteors) by Averbakh and Verkhovsky|
It's about 4 very strong players who died early: Mark Stolberg (1922-1943), Klaus Junge (1924-1945), <Alexandr Evenson> (1892-1919), Rudolf Charousek (1873-1900).
|Mar-10-12|| ||brankat: A very talented young master. and yet another life full of promise cut short. In 3 years of brief career he notched wins against Ragozin, Chekhover, Bondarevsky, Konstantinopolsky, Mikenas,
Kotov, Alatortsev. Drew games with Lilienthal, Levenfish, Makogonov.|
R.I.P. master Stolberg.
