Miniature twomover, so not that hard to solve. White wants to play 2. Re8# by double check. For this the wK has to move to a suitable place to unpin the wR and have an answer (a cross check) to the black check, so not 1. Kc3? (Kb2?), Kd2?, Kd1? Qxg7+!, Qh6+!, Qh1+! Only the move to b3 remains and solves.

Meindert Niemeijer (* 18.2.1902 in Rotterdam, 5.10.1987 in Rotterdam) Dutch composer and International Master, see wikipedia de, it, lv, nl, ru. "Niemeijer was a prolific author of 600 chess problems and of over 30 books and brochures. He worked in the insurance business like Wolfgang Pauly and also collected chess books. He gave his 7000-book collection to the Koninklijke Bibliotheek in The Hague in 1948, which now detains the richest chess books collection - the "Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana". Niemeijer also wrote a monography about Wolfgang Pauly which was the reference book about the Romanian composer until Marian Stere published his voluminous "Challenge of a Legacy" in 2001. Niemeijer also dedicated a problem to W. Pauly at the occasion of Pauly's 50th birthday, see"
