[what is this?]

Baratz was born in B‚rnova, Romania. In 1924, he went to France to study art and he lived there the rest of his life. He won the Paris championship in 1925, 1927 and 1928, while finishing second in 1926. Baratz won HyŤres 1926, ahead of Janowski. At Hastings 1927-28, he shared first place with Koltanowski. At Paris International Tournament 1929, he was equal 2nd with Tartakower.

Baratz competed for Romania in the Olympics at Hamburg 1930 and Prague 1931. His chess activities tapered off in the 1930's. His results were Bucharest 1930 (=1st with Wechsler), Nice 1931 (=2nd with Del Turco), Paris 1933 (=3rd with Lilienthal) and Paris 1938 (3rd).

Baratz was a sculptor with a studio in Montmartre. In 1956, he sculpted a likeness of Alekhine which sits above the grave in Montparnasse cemetery.

Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-11-05  Eastfrisian: Abraham Baratz was born on September 14, 1895 and passed away 1975 in Paris. He represented Romania in the Olympiads 1930 (board 1) and 1931 (board 3) (sometimes 1929 is named - that must be wrong), but it seems, that he later moved to France and got the French citizenship. He also was a student of sculpture.

Baratz won the Tournament in HyŤres 1926 leaving Janowski, Romih and others behind him.
