Rubinstein Chess Column

"Der Moment" published from 1910 a chess column in Yiddish edited by Rubinstein. Here are the first  (Nov. 18th 1910) and the second column as an example. Above are the beginnings of both [long] columns; the complete columns are in the links.

The first column includes, inter alia, Rotlewi - Bogljyobow 1:0 (Rubinstein calls the opening "Queen's pawn game" and explains that Black "uses the old reply to the queen's gambit"'; today it is known as the old Indian defense), the second a report on the Lasker-Janowsky match with a game from it (a Lasker victory).
