  whiteshark: A historical interesting and informative statement from the player of the day Paul Michel

"Zahlreiche Schachturniere jener Jahre verdankt man der rastlosen Energie eines Mannes, Post. Als vor nunmehr sechzehn Jahren der Schreiber dieser Zeilen anläßlich einer Artikelreihe in den Deutschen Schachblättern - 'Die Skandinavische Partie' - aufgefordert wurde, die jüdischen Namen zu unterdrücken und er erwiderte, daß dann auch die der Nichtjuden fortzubleiben hätten, da erklärte Post auf der Stelle sein Einverständnis. Als man im November 1938 (Reichskristallnacht, Anm. HB) von der spontanen Volkswut sprach, da sagte Post spöttisch verächtlich: "Die Volkswut, die früh drei Uhr wachgeworden ist." Wir könnten diese Beispiele vermehren, doch: sapientia sat. Es wird nicht gelingen diesen Mann für immer totzumachen, in dankbaren Herzen lebt er weiter. Denen aber, die sich in blindwütigem Haß zur knirschenden Verwünschung des Grafen von Savern versteigen: Den werft mir in die Hölle, daß er zu Asche gleich vergehe und ihn mein Aug' nicht weiter sehe! - denen rufen wir zu: Richtet euren Haß an die Adresse derer, die ihn verdienen, denen wir es verdanken, daß unsere Lieben freudlos dahingebleicht, unser vertrautes Land, unsere Städte zerfetzt sind! - In sonst erbarmungslosen Tagen, Wochen, Jahren gab es für uns Schachmeister Stunden des Trostes, von Freude, Unbekümmertheit, die wir großenteils Post verdankten und mit uns die vielen Namenlosen, denen das Nachspielen Hochgenuß verschafft, ein Sonnenstrahl ist in des Daseins ödem Grau. In diesem Sinne wage sich dieses Buch ans Licht!" Bemerkenswert ist dabei auch, daß das Buch von Michel <<Frau Salome Reischer, Meisterin von Österreich, der gütigen Helferin in bitteren Jahren in Dankbarkeit zugeeignet> ist. Reischer war Jüdin und emigrierte nach Palästina und später in die USA. Sie kehrte nach Restitution ihres vorher arisierten Familienbesitzes nach Wien zurück und starb dort 1980.>

  GrahamClayton: Reischer was Austrian women's champion in 1950, 1952 and 1954. Did she move back to her country of birth after representing Palestine, and then moved to the United States?

Jan-09-14  Karpova: Salome Reischer won the 1st Women's Championship of Austria in 1936. She received a golden clock donated by the 'Neue Wiener Journal'. Furthermore, the 'Wiener Schachzeitung' donated the challenge ring (<Wanderring>, i. e. a ring held by the current titleholder) for the best female chessplayer of Austria. The Austrian Chess Federation (president Hanacik) officially arranged the tournament, and the 'Neue Wiener Journal' (Dr. Kondor) was also very much involved.

Reischer had already participated at the International Tournament at the Semmering (later the <internationale Damenturnier am Semmering> is mentioned, so the tournament was very likely a women's tournament.).

Final standing:

1. S Reischer 11.5
2. G Harum 11.0
3. von Kasparowsky 9.5
4. Zollner 9.0
5. Vranovits 8.5
6. Werther 8.0
7. Jarno 7.0
8. Lohinsky 6.5
9. Kunz 6.0
10. Hajek 5.0
11. Gülich 4.5
12-13. Packer 2.0
12-13. Weiß 2.0
14. Delitz 0.5

Reischer remained undefeated, scoring +10 -0 =3. Gisela Harum scored +10 -1 =2.

A surprise was 3rd place by Mrs. von Kasparowsky, a club player from St. Pölten, who debuted in Vienna. Prizes were awarded down to Miss Werther on place 6. Both, Miss Jarno and Mrs. Gülich are well-known tournament players, but the latter was out of form. Tournament newcomers were Mrs. Lohinsky and Miss Kunz. Mrs. Hajek, our "beautée", also showed beautiful attacking play but still lacks vigour. Farther behind were the tournament fledglings Mrs. Paker*, Miss Weiß from Graz who endured a losing streak at the beginning admirably and Mrs. Delitz.

*Written <Packer> in the standings, <Paker> in the article.

  zanzibar: A google translation of the specific part referring to Reischer:

<<Mrs. Salome Reischer, Champion of Austria, the benevolent helper is appropriated in bitter years in gratitude>. Reischer was Jewish and emigrated to Palestine and later in the United States. She returned to restitution of their previously aryanised family property back to Vienna, where he died 1980th>

Much of the article is a lament about Crystalnacht and the treatment of Jews. It seems Reischer suffered deprivations as well, but managed to escape to Palestine, and then the US, ultimately to return back to Vienna and reclaim her family property(?).

I believe she may have died in 1980(?), and so didn't make it to 109.

Could a German-speaker verify this please? Thanks.

Feb-19-16  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Salome Reischer.
