Today (July 27th) is the 114th anniversary of the 2nd Women’s World Champion (1950-53) Lyudmila Rudenko’s birth.

Today’s Google doodle celebrates her. In WWII, she organized the evacuation of children in Leningrad. Also in WWII, Vera Menchik (1st champion) was killed in a London air raid.

What a remarkable story!
