  whiteshark: There is an article


in <Karl - <Die Kulturelle Schachzeitung>> issue 2004/04

  whiteshark: <vonKrolock> I've found some links referring to a Baron <Ludwig Döry>. A culture-historican? Maybe identical?
Aug-18-07  vonKrolock: <whiteshark> Ladislau Baron Döry was also known as <Konzertpianist und Komponist>. The article in "Karl" presents some facts on his destiny after 1938?! - It seems that some doubts are persisting (maybe it could roud a search like we started on Pitschak in User: Gypsy

  Karpova: He appeared in Edward Winter's chess notes today:

He was sentenced to death by the Nazis but it's not clear if he survived the war or not. A picture can be found on this page:

  Gejewe: <Karpova>
The link you give has some text in German : hingerichtet means executed. Which sadly answers your question if he survived the war.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Karpova: <Gejewe>
That's the problem. The link with the picture is the source Winter cites when speaking about Döry's death during WWII but The Oxford Companion to Chess claims he was rescued from prison by the Allies in 1945 and Jeremy Gaige indicates that he was still alive in 1947.

  Calli: In fact, there were two major tournaments in Vienna in 1928:

12th Trebitsch Memorial- Grunfeld, Takacs 6.5; Hoenlinger, Kmoch, Lokvenc, Tartakower 6; A. Becker 4.5; E. Steiner ,Ladislaus von Döry 4; Hans Muller 3, Sigmund Beutum 2.5

Sportklub Hakoah- Reti 10.5; Becker, Bernhard Lichtenstein. Spielmann, Tartakower 8.5; Kmoch 8; Grunfeld 7.5; Hans Muller 6.5; Ladislaus von Döry Fritz Igel, Takacs 5; Eduard Glass 3.5; Sigmund Beutum, Sigfried Wolf 3

With many of the same players in both events, it would not surprise if game scores are not correctly assigned. On the other hand, many games are probably just labeled Vienna 1928 without a specific tournament.

<It states that Baron Döry was sentenced to death for sedition in Berlin on 7 October 1943. His hands bound, he spent 125 days in a death cell at Plötzensee. Without abrogation of his capital sentence, he was subsequently taken to other prisons (Brandenburg and Straubing), and on 1 May 1945 he was released by American troops.>

  Karpova: Reminiscences by Georg Marco:

First the father, <k. u. k. Kämmerer, Rittmeister> Nikolaus Baron Döry v. Jobahaza was a <Grand Seigneur> in the most noble sense of the word and yet unaffectedly amicable. He was also a strong chessplayer *. He has three sons and three daughters.

His oldest son is Andor Baron Döry v. Jobahaza, who enlisted immediatly after the outbreak of the war and is currently a <k. u. k. Fähnrich in der 2. Maschinengewehr-Abteilung des Husaren-Regiments Nr. 5>. In 1912/1913, he came in 2nd in a tournament at his <Akademischen Gymnasiums> after play-off (11 rounds, organised by Nicolaus Baron Döry, in the Vienna Chess Club, December 22 to 24, 1912):

1. Kolisch 10.0
2. Baron Andor Döry 10.0
3. Elias 8.5
4. Kulka 8.0
5. Kollmann 7.0
6. Brück 5.5
7. Kurzmann 5.5

These were the prize-winners (also play-off between Brück and Kurzmann). Then followed

8. Klein 5.0
9. Blaustein 3.5
10. Bennisch 2.0
11. Röger 1.0
12. Alma 0.0

The second youngest son is Ladislaus Baron Döry v. Jobahaza, also a passionate chessplayer and chess composer.
