We have previously posted on this blog a picture of the 1939 Palestine team. Herbert Halsegger had kindly provided us with a much better quality photo (obviously taken on the same occasion, based on the clothes). In particular he noted Salome Reischer, born in Austria, who was part of the Palestinian team in 1939. As her Wikipedia page points out, she (like Karff) didn't stay in Palestine after the war, but went back to her native country, Austria.
Added: Mr. Halsegger notes the photo is found on this web page, of the Associacion Rosarina de Ajedrez, which credits La Nación, sept. 3rd, 1939 for the photos, as well as Edward Winter, David McAlister, and Knud Lysdal.
