For Einstein, in addition to his scientific achievements, was a man of many parts— amateur but serious violinist*, impassioned humanitarian and internationalist, affectionate husband, father, brother and friend, kind adviser and teacher of strangers — and each part is reflected in his papers, which are to be published by the Einstein estate and Princeton University Press.
*I read or heard somewhere why the Jews seemed to be heavy into violin music.
It was very practical. They 'had' to travel quit a bit and the violin was one of the easiest instruments (small) to travel with. "FIDDLER ON THE ROOF"
In 1902, Einstein's father died, leaving him to care for his mother and sister, which was incredibly difficult because he was unemployed.
In 1912, Einstein began an affair with his cousin and childhood friend Elsa Löwenthal, who would later become his second wife.
Despite Einstein's affairs with other women throughout their marriage, Elsa stayed with Einstein until she died in 1936 of heart and kidney problems.
In 1950, after accepting a life membership to the Montreal Pipe Smokers Club, Einstein said he believed "that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs".
(later in life his doctor convinced him to stop smoking & he did)
Einstein's brain is currently located at Princeton University Medical Centre.
All his sexual escapades must drive you atheists crazy. That is your deadlist
sin after murdering your own mother.
