Sep-05-08  myschkin: . . .

<Simon Rotenstein> (~1890 - ??)

Gewann 1919 das Winterturnier des Berliner Schachvereins mit 12 Gewinnpartien aus 14 Runden, mit einem Vorsprung von 2 Punkten. Beim Meisterturnier 1920 in Berlin belegte er immerhin Platz 3 von 11 nach den starken Meisterspielern Selesniew und Sämisch, noch vor Post, der auf Platz 4 landete. Berliner Meister 1930 geteilt mit Kurt Richter und Ludwig Rellstab.

in German:

Jan-27-11  Caissanist: cites what appears to be Rotenstein's last known tournament:

<[I]n a tournament held at the Bar Kochba, Leipzig, at the end of 1935, for the Jewish championship of Germany, S. Fajarowicz and J. Mundsztuk, both of Leipzig, and S. Rotenstein, of Berlin, tied for first place, with 5 points each in 7 games. The tournament was played on the Swiss system, with 17 competitors in all.’>

The link given by <myschkin> confirms that Rotenstein was a Holocaust victim.

Jul-09-13  thomastonk: <Caissanist: The link given by <myschkin> confirms that Rotenstein was a Holocaust victim.> No. It mentions that "a" Simon Rotenstein, member of the jewish community in Erlangen, Bavaria died in the Holocaust.
