Schachdorf Ströbeck

'.. The main activity for which the village is known, occurred possibly in 1011. According to legend, Bishop Arnulf of Halberstadt had imprisoned Gunzelin of Kuckenburg, the deposed Margrave of Meissen, in the Wartturm, a tower in Ströbeck, and ordered the local farmers to guard him. Due to the boredom in his prison, Gunzelin created a chess set and taught his guards the game. ..'


'.. in Ströbeck ist Schach seit 1823 Pflichtfach in der Schule. In alten Ausgaben der Deutschen Schachzeitung aus Berlin findet man Artikel, die davon berichten, daß in Ströbeck seit dieser Zeit sogenannte Schachexamina stattfanden. Im Jahre 1831 hat William Lewis, ein Schachlehrer aus London, Ströbeck besucht und über seine Erfahrungen zum Beispiel im französischen Magazin Le Palamède, aber auch in englischen Schachzeitungen berichtet. Ich habe eine Zeitlang versucht, diese Artikel aufzutreiben, weil sie Auskunft über die Ströbecker Schachtradition zu einem ganz bestimmten Zeitabschnitt geben. Mit dem Internet ist das heutzutage natürlich ein Kinderspiel, aber zu DDR-Zeiten war das nahezu unmöglich. ..'
