enquiry by Yakov (Jack) Zusmanovich:
This is Yakov Zusmanovich from California, USA.
Currently I am cooperating with a well-known Russian chess historian and writer, Sergey Voronkov ("Russians vs. Fischer" with Plisetsky, "Masterpieces and Dramas of the Soviet Championships", "David Janowski" with Plisetsky, "Secret Notes" with Bronstein, "Vladimir Simagin") for his book on Dr. Fedor Bohatirchuk who was undeservedly forgotten and erased by Soviet authorities from Russian and world chess history.
We are going
to re-publish Dr. Bohatirchuk’s scarce book, "Moi zhiznenny
put' k Vlasovu i Prazhskomu Manifestu - My living route to Vlasov and
Prague Manifesto," which was published in San Francisco in Russian
in 1978. In addition to the text produced by Dr. Bohatirchuk, the book
will include a collection of Bohatirchuk's games, articles, and documents.
May you ask the members of KWA to help us with materials
related to Bohatirchuk's chess and scientific careers? Materials can include
games, pictures, caricatures, articles, score sheets, etc. Our special
concerns are games played by Dr. Bohatirchuk in his match with Stephan
Popel (Popiel) at Cracow and in a tournament at Radom, Poland (both events
took place in 1944).
