|Jan-24-05|| ||aw1988: I used to always mistake this guy for Leonid Stein. At least now I know the difference. :) |
|May-01-06|| ||Caissanist: Was Steiner a holocaust victim?|
|May-01-06|| ||Resignation Trap: <Caissanist> By sheer coincidence, I was looking through old issues of <<Chess Review>> in search of the games between Reshevsky and Botvinnik in the USA vs. USSR match of 1946. I found them, as well as an article by Lajos Steiner titled "MY BROTHER ENDRE" in the November 1946 issue.|
<<In the concentration camp death of my brother, Endre, I lost someone who was near and dear to me, and the world lost a very fine chessplayer. Endre did not live long enough to achieve the very best of which he was capable. His outstanding successes were at Hastings (1925); Trentchin-Teplitz (1928) and Kemeri (1937).
The game which follows is typical of Endre's personality and his style. He would go into a position deeply, evolve his plans and pursue them to their logical conclusion, no matter how complicated the sequel might be.>>

|Sep-04-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Endre Steiner|
|Sep-04-06|| ||mandy64: He died in 1944, and played with Paoli in 1951?|
|Jun-27-16|| ||NyP: <Caissanist> Strictly speaking he was not a holocaust victim, as he died during labour service. He was recruited to the regular Hungarian army, but "unreliable" people were not given arms (political left, jews, etc). Their fate depended on their officers. For some this service was a nightmare (e.g, cleaning minefields), for others chance for survival avoiding the concentration camps. Endre Steiner died from a grenade. Lajos emigrated to Australia in 1939 and became 4-time Australian champion.|
|Jun-27-16|| ||Gottschalk: If the WW2 was over before the 1944 winter, could exist only the Russian-German holocaust, the largest of all (about 30 million dead) among people affected by war
The truth is that most of the victims of concentration camps in Eastern Europe died of hunger or disease or cold.
As seen in period films, the survivors of 45 were squalid and his death was near come
In meetings between Churchill, Stalin and Roosevelt had been agreed that the German surrender should be unconditional.
Faced with the refusal to negotiate peace, it is doubtful that a government formed by conspirators of July 20 could peace to reduce the number of dead.
Patton's offensive in addition to shorten the war, allowed the victims (in both sides) can received Western assistance.|
