|Sep-08-12|| ||sneaky pete: 5 points in a 6 games tournament isn't very likely, unless Kmoch is the tournament director, and he wasn't on this occasion. The correct score is 1. Landau 2,5 2. Koltanowski 1,5 3/4. Mühring and Prins 1.|
Zandvoort 1934 was a weekend tournament (one game on Saturday September 15, two games on Sunday September 16). Two foreign masters were matched in the 2 top groups with 3 strong Dutch players. In the other group Lilienthal scored 3 points and the cannon fodder (Fontein, Hamming and Oskam) 2 draws each.
|Dec-16-12|| ||thomastonk: I have just uploaded some newspaper pictures of Landau. Here with Réti in 1927: http://www.pic-upload.de/view-17337..., and the others can be found on the game pages: S Landau vs Rubinstein, 1930 and Spielmann vs S Landau, 1936.|

Wonderful! Thanks much for those.
Landau could play some very smooth, elegant chess.
|Sep-21-13|| ||Zonszein: I've read on My Great Predecessors Vol. II that Euwe wrote to Alekhine (twice) requesting his help in saving Salo Landau. The letters were unanswered...|
|Sep-22-13|| ||aliejin: "his help in saving..."
In the third Reich nobody could save anyone
except for very rare events ......
Alekhine, who once protested
the execution of Pzepiorka and not having a good time,
could save lives, was a fantasy ...
|Sep-22-13|| ||Zonszein: "....nobody could save anyone.." etc
But he didn't even answer those letters!
Letters that Euwe in the other hand, had the courage to write...
|Apr-01-14|| ||Castleinthesky: It always brings me sadness when I read Landau's biography. However, I am thankful that the immortal game of chess can keep him in our memories.|
|Apr-01-14|| ||Howard: Apparently Wolf and Treybal were not, most unfortunately, the only well-known chess players of their day to perish at the hands of the Nazi's.|
|Apr-01-14|| ||RedShield: It used to be said that Landau died at Auschwitz. Anyone know what source of information was responsible for the revision?|
|Apr-01-14|| ||Refused: Wild guess from his biography.
<He was sent to a forced-labor camp in Gräditz; his wife and daughter to Auschwitz>
I assume it has to do with his family dieing in Auschwitz, and people might conclude he died there too.
|Apr-01-14|| ||RedShield: Do you understand the meaning of the word 'revision'?|
|Apr-01-14|| ||Refused: I misunderstood your post, sorry my bad.|

|Mar-23-15|| ||Stonehenge: "Their little daughter Renee <Henriette Renee, Amsterdam, 28 Nov 1938 - Auschwitz, 14 Oct 1944> was arrested in November and went to the nursery near the Dutch Theater*. There she was rescued, and via Max Euwe's house, she went to her second safehouse."|
|Feb-23-17|| ||The Kings Domain: Such a sad story. This is where individual tragedy trumps statistics.|

Not sure what you are trying to convey here ? .
|Jan-30-18|| ||harrylime: He was Alekhine's 2nd in the Euwe match ..
Not just him , but his wife and child too.
And I read in his Bio he was taken to Holland as a child for safe refuge in the Great War. The irony.
As I said. Heartbreaking.
|Jan-30-18|| ||Stonehenge: The info in English says:
The Hollandsche Schouwburg was built as a theatre in 1892, but during the Second World War it was a deportation centre for Jews. Today, the building is a monument to the memory of those victims. In 1992, the Hollandsche Schouwburg came under the management of the JHM. At that time, the Hollandsche Schouwburg Foundation was established, and since then the mayor of Amsterdam has always served as its chairman. The monument contains a memorial wall, bearing the 6,700 family names of the 104,000 Dutch Jewish victims of the Second World War.

I am crying as I read this BTW !
|Jan-30-18|| ||hemy: Samuel Landau was born in Bochnia, Poland in 1903 to Jechezkel Landau and Evgenia Landau-Mondeker. |
He was married to Suzanna van Creveld.
Place of death: camp Graeditz, Breslau (now Wrocław in Poland), Lower Silesia (Niederschlesien), Germany.
Date of death: March 31, 1944.
Testimony of his sister Eva Landau on January 19th 1981.
Samuel's daughter Henriette Rene Landau (born on November 28, 1938) was murdered in camp Auschwitz, Poland on October 14, 1944.
|Jan-30-18|| ||Stonehenge: I wonder if she was sure about his date of death. From Wikipedia: |
If a date of death is unknown, the latest day is used of the month in which somebody was seen alive.
|Jan-30-18|| ||hemy: <Stonehenge> The testimony of Eva Landau is handwritten with her signature. |
The date of death is the same in the record taken from the List of murdered Jews from the Netherlands, found in "In Memoriam" - Nederlandse oorlogsslachtoffers, Nederlandse Oorlogsgravenstichting, `s-Gravenhage. (Dutch Victims, Dutch War Victims Authority).
|Jan-30-18|| ||Stonehenge: I'm sure she didn't actually witness Salo's death. The 31st of March may very well be an administrative date used by the Dutch authorities because the actual date was not known. They did the same with Anne Frank, 31st of March 1945.|
|Jan-30-18|| ||hemy: "The date of March 31, 1944 is that in which some witnesses survived the Holocaust saw Salo Landau alive, while some documents attested his death on November 15, 1943. Euwe tried in vain to intervene in his favor, but all was in vain. The fate of his daughter and wife is instead documented by the official records of the Auschwitz camp, where they were killed by gas on October 12, 1944."|
(La data del 31 marzo 1944 è quella in cui alcuni testimoni sopravvissuti all’Olocausto videro Salo Landau vivo, mentre alcuni documenti attesterebbero la sua morte il 15 novembre 1943. Euwe tentò inutilmente di intervenire in suo favore, ma tutto fu vano. La sorte della moglie della figlia è invece documentata dai registri ufficiali del campo di Auschwitz, dove esse vennero uccise tramite gas il 12 ottobre 1944.)
