For those who like chess history, know that German chess would have a much stronger Olympic team if Klaus Junge (1924-1945) had not died on the eve of the end of World War II. I did a search on Klaus Junge some time ago and there is an article on Wikipedia about him, take a look:
OK. Unzicker and Junge were in the same training group in the early 40s, but Junge was much stronger and at the age of 16/17 played training matches directly with Alekhin (!!). There are many pictures about all this on the Internet, including other articles about Klaus Junge (several in German language), but so that people don't understand this as Nazi propaganda, I prefer not to show other links here on this subject.
Just one observation, a curiosity that motivated my research on that occasion: the similarities between Klaus Junge and the current German number 1 Vincent Keymer are frightening to me, whether in the style of play, whether in the family history, whether even in some physical similarities. Oh, my God!
