Biographical data
Name: May, Desider  
Born: 17 Mar. 1900
Died: 5 Aug. 1942
 
Notes:
Gaige gives date of death as 'c1940'. Yad Vashem gives date of death as 5 Aug. 1942. Gaige and Di Felice have 'O. May' where it should be Desider May at Moravska Ostrava 1926. Gaige has 'A. May' and Di Felice has 'May, Anton' where it should be Desider May at Stubnanske Teplice 1930. Di Felice has both 'May, Desider' and 'May, Deszo' in Chess Results 1936-1940, but 'Dezső' and 'Desider' are variants of the same name, so I presume these refer to the same person.
