Jul-27-07  sneaky pete: Driek van Wisen: Anti-Fries 3

Ik zou onlangs in Friesland naar Oom Frits
om samen te gaan zeilen voor een week;
dus vroeg ik her en der de weg naar Sneek,
maar niemand die fungeren wou als gids.

Integendeel, men reageerde bits
terwijl men zeer afkeurend naar mij keek,
tot iemand toch wat meer behulpzaam bleek
en zei: 'Ik wil de weg best wijzen, mits ...'

En daarna kwam een niet te volgen preek,
want ik versta de taal niet van die streek
hoezeer ik daartoe ook mijn oren spits
laat staan dat ik een aardig mondje spreek.

Maar plotseling begreep ik in een flits:
ze hebben SNEEK hier omgedoopt in SNITS!

Jul-27-07  Calli: <So is Alexander Ilyin-Zhenevsky from Geneva?> Yes, sort of. Ilyin-Zhenevsky was born Alexander Ilyin and added Genevsky/Zhenevsky while living in Geneva. Apparently thought it sounded more prestigious. More famously, his brother Feodor assumed the name Rashkolnikov during the October revolution. After the Dostoevsky character, I assume.
Jul-27-07  Calli: Frieslanders speak a with a bad accent? Thats what I got out of the verse. Someone goes on vacation with his uncle Frits ( a chess reference!) and asks directions but niemand can help. Finally, he figures out that they pronounce Sneek like Snits? Maybe...
Jul-27-07  sneaky pete: <Calli> No bad accent, the Frisians have their own funny little language that sounds like a cross between Danish and English (with a northern accent) as spoken by sea lions, if sea lions would speak a cross between Danish and English (with a northern accent).

The poet is Driek van Wissen with double s in the middle, sorry for the typo.

What I read about Ilyin is that he added Zhenevsky to his name after completing a tour around Lake Geneva on his bicycle.

Jul-27-07  Calli: I see. Freisland and Frisian - I didn't make the connection.

  Stonehenge: Mannheimer, Nathan

Geboren in Birkenau (Hessen) am 29. November 1865, israelitischen Bekenntnisses, besuchte die Volksschule, die Höhere Bürgerschule zu Weinheim und die Höhere Lehranstlt zu Pfungstadt. Im Frühjahr 1884 kam er als Religionslehrer nach Düdelsheim in Oberhessen, gab nach nahezu zehnjähriger Tätigkeit diese Stelle auf und bezog im Herbst 1893 die Universität Heidelberg, wo er Mathematik und Naturwissenschaften studierte. Nachdem er 1895 die Reifeprüfung als Externer am Gymnasium zu Bensheim nachgeholt hatte, bestand er Ostern 1898 in Karlsruhe das Staatsexamen und promovierte im Sommer desselben Jahres zu Heidelberg auf Grund seiner Dissertation über algebraische Differentialgleichungen zum Dr. phil. – Von Ostern 1897 bis Herbst 1900 war er an den Realschulen zu Dürkheim und Frankenthal als Mathematiklehrer, siedelte dann nach Frankfurt am Main über, wo er von Ostern 1901 bis Ostern 1902 an der Musterschule das Probejahr ablegte. Von Ostern 1902 bis Herbst 1903 war er wissenschaftlicher Hilfslehrer an der Bockenheimer Realschule, übernahm dann den Mathematik- und Physikunterricht an den Realgymnasialkursen für Mädchen, mit denen er an die Schillerschule kam, wo Ostern 1909 seine Anstellung als Oberlehrer erfolgte. Aus: Programm Frankfurt a. M. Schillerschule 1910.

Aug-27-12  backrank: Interesting ... his biography has some resemblance to mine ... but as a chess player, he is only known as the loser of a famous Nimzowitsch game:

  whiteshark: As the source of my last post said, he was 5 times City-Champion of Frankfurt/Main.

How do you know?

  whiteshark: <HansDPost> I used this source http://www.rheinische-geschichte.lv...

there you can find the caption, as quoted above <4. Dr. Nathan Mannheimer (fünffacher Sieger, Frankfurt)>.

However, http://bezirk-frankfurt.schach-chro... lists only 1908 and 1920.

In respect of such discrepancy, this should be investigated in greater depth. Could you help us?

Nov-03-13  HansDPost: Hi whiteshark: a simple misunderstanding! The text in parentheses means that NM has won the Bad Ems tournaments five times, but he is a resident of Frankfurt. Compare this to the other quotes in parentheses for Kurt Hillesheim, Alfred Strauss and others. As the maker of fsm.schach-chroniken.net it would be more than a big surprise to me if this (NM, five times winner of FSM) would be true.

  whiteshark: <HansDPost> You're right! Sorry for misinterpreting and thus causing such confusion.
Dec-24-13  Karpova: On March 5, 1914, Dr. Lasker visited the <Schachverein Anderssen e. V.> in Frankfurt a. M. and gave a 22-board Simul. He scored +19 -0 =3, drawing Dr. Mannheimer, Hans Ehlers and Vath.

In the Winter of 1915, the Chess Club opened a chess school like every year. Due to the war, the class was free of charge. There were 23 pupils and the instructor was Prof. Dr. Mannheimer who conducted the class in <mustergiltiger Weise>.

  offramp: His birthday today. There's still no date of death for him. His first games here are from 1880 when he was only 16 years old, playing an 18 year old Tarrasch.
Nov-30-15  Michael Rothstein: The only reason I joined: I wanted to help complete this column (I am one of his grandsons). Nathan Mannheimer was able to emigrate to Rio de Janeiro, Brasil in 1939/40 (after the Krystalnacht) and lived there until he passed away in 1951.

  Stonehenge: Thanks, I see you did some research:

https://www.wnoz.de/detailedstory;j...

Jan-03-19  Chessist: Tarrasch's opponent in 1880 was Adolf Mannheimer (+27.03.1890), compare Riemann, Schach-Erinnerungen, pp 2-3, 287-306.
Apr-05-21  Alan McGowan: Dr Mannheimer died 21 October 1951 at Rio de Janeiro. His grave is shown at
