Abstract

The study of the history of Jewish chess players is a brand new field of history study. This paper deals with how Jewish chess players in the 19th and early 20th century considered chess and the identity of the Jewish ethnic group. This study will analyze writings related to Jewish chess players, which are mostly from this period, and demonstrate how Jewish players utilized chess to create a sense of collectiveness and combat anti-Semitism. The significance of this study lies in that it explores the history of Jewish chess players, which is a brand new and promising field in history, and is useful for the further study of Jewish ideology and the appearance of nationalism in the 19th and 20th century.
