Re: Bachmann
Vladimir Pachman, awarded the Grandmaster of Chess Composition title in
1976, was the older brother of Czech-German International Grandmaster Ludek
Pachman (1924-2003), who was imprisoned and nearly tortured to death by the
Communists in the late 1960s before being allowed to emigrate to West
Germany in 1972, where he later became the West German chess champion.
