"Ha'Sachmat" Gets Noticed Abroad
Our correspondent Moshe Roytman notes that Ha'Sachmat, the magazine often mentioned in this blog which was published in the early 1920s by the Lasker chess club had been noticed abroad. For example he notes that on Dec. 5th, 1923, a short article [above] about it appeared in Der Moment, a European Yiddish-language newspaper.
I suppose this is partially what Mohilever meant when said in Doar Hayom [29.6.23] at the time that "the eyes of the Jewish chess world are raised to us" as the Lasker club is "holding up proudly the flag of Jewish chess"...
