  GrahamClayton: In 1944 Florian Laszo Lindner were sent to a concentration camp in Bor in Yugoslavia where they kept their sanity by playing chess together. Near the end of the war the Germans arranged ostensibly organized train transport back to Hungary for the prisoners, but in fact the train was stopped at one point and the occupants were forced to march back towards the Third Reich with few surviving. Fortunately Lindner and Florian did because they forgot to board the train, being distracted by a game they were playing!

  eternaloptimist: I'm not familiar w/ IM Florian at all, but I can see that he had some nice wins in his resume from skimming through his games.
