Friedrich Martin Palitzsch (25-10-1889 - 02-03-1932) German composer

Friedrich Palitzsch was a founding theoretician of the German Logical school. He created, explored and promoted the Dresden theme: A good defence to a threat is eliminated (usually by means of a foreplan) and a bad defence by a different piece (not previously available) is introduced.
In 1917 he wrote "Die Ablenkung, das Element der indirekten Kombination" which exposed the concepts of the neo-German school.
