According to "Bratislava Pressburg Pozsony" by A. Robert Neurath, Walter died in 1940.

The deflection sacrifice 1...c2! forces one of the white pieces to stop defending e1, thus allowing a back-rank mate. 2.f4 fails to 2...xc1, again removing a defender of the e1 square.

The English Wikipedia has: "Max Walter (born 1899 – died 1945) was a Slovak chess master." So, not only the year of death is different. The Slovak Wikipedia has "Max Walter (* 1896 – † 1940)" and the following remark: "Max Walter apparently died in a concentration camp in 1940, although there is a record of his alleged participation in a tournament in Madrid 1945."
