Transcript of Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein is born in Ulm, Germany, on March 14.
That is one way you know its a biography, as autobiographies are usually written in 1st person point of
The biography of "Einstein: Visionary
Scientist" is told in 3rd person point of view.
1st person usually uses "I" or "we" throughout the story.
I know it is written in 3rd person because the author uses words like, "he", "she", and "they" throughout the story.
Point of View
Einstein seemed to travel
It especially seemed like it since
he went to all these places in the early 1900's, and mid 1950s.
1) When Albert was first born his family thought he was mildly stupid, because he was was "much too heavy, much too heavy" said by Einstein's Grandmother. They soon found out he just had a learning disability.
What I Enjoyed Most!
An example of this would be when Einstein first arrived in America he said
What I really enjoyed throughout the book was how the author included Einstein's humors!
"The first thing I want, is a vanilla ice cream cone with, chocolate sprinkles."
Another example of Einstein's humor would be, when he was making appearances, and giving lectures on the quantum theory.
but half way through his lectures he would "please ask for those who are just here to see him, and not learn, leave."
And, people who just wanted to see Einstein in person would come and listen,
Less than two dozen people would be left at his lectures!
2) Einstein married his cousin, which he was closely related to him! She was his paternal first cousin, and his maternal second cousin!
The author's purpose for writing this book, is to inform the reader of Albert Einsteins life.
Not only did they shape science but some are still being tested to figure the truth behind them.
Including struggles he faced, along with his amazing achievements which helped shape science and math today.
3) Einstein was, at first denied a Nobel Prize Award because the award committee could prove his theories.
to give him an award and have it proven wrong later.
So, they didn't want
4) Einstein was a pacifist, yet his research helped create the nuclear bomb that struck japan in World War II.
5) Einstein was raised in a jewish household, yet he went to a Catholic Church School, in Munich. He was Jewish but he wasn't very strict about going to the Jewish synagogue.
The Einsteins family moves to Munich.
Marie (a.k.a. Maja) is born on November 18.
Albert graduaes ETH but is unemployed.
Begins school at a public school that is Catholic.
Uncle brings science books to Albert.
Family moves to Milan, leaving Albert behind.
Albert leaves school without finishing to go to family. Fails exam into Zurich technical institute (ETH). Enrolls in high school at Aarau, Switzerland.
Einstien finishes high school and enrolls into ETH, where he meets his future wife, classmate Mileva.
In Zurich to visit sons, Albert asks Mileva for a divorce. World War I ends November 10.

Einstein is granted Swiss citizenship. He finds a temporary teaching job at Winterthur and then in Schaffhausen.
Albert moves to Bern, while in Serbia, Liserl (Albert and Mileva's daughter) is born at Milevas's parents' house. Einstein worked for he Swiss patent office. His father, Hermann, dies in Milan.
Mileva and Albert marry on January 6.
Hans Albert is born on May 14.
An doctorate is awarded to Einstein by the University of Geneva. Among the other honorees are Ernest Solvay, and Marie Curie. Einstein resigns from the University of Bern to accept a position as associate professor at the University of Zurich.
Eduard, Mileva and Albert's second son, is born on July 28.
Accepts position as full prffosser at the University of Prague, and then the capital of tge Cezch Republic. He goes to Brussels for the first Solvay Congress, agahering of leading Europeans scientists presided over by the Dutch physicist Hendrick Lorentz.
Annalen der Physik publishes Einstein's paper on the general theory of relativity. He writes papers on quantum physics and first begins to doubt the element of uncertainty in the theory.
Elsa and Albert travel by ship to Japan, where Einstein gives lectures. Returning by sea, they learn he has been awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize in physics.
Working in Berlin, Einstein learns of the work of Satyenda Bose in India and Louis de Brogile in France on the physics of light. He gives them credit in his paper on the wave-particle nature of light.
Einstein works at the new Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton thinking that he will divide his time between there and Berlin.
Einstein becomes a U.S. citizen.
Einstein becomes a consultant to the U.S. Navy.
This causes the FBI director to step up his secret investigation of Einstein.
Einstein and others protest the jailing of lawyers who defended American Communists in a conspiracy trial.
In April, Einstein collapses at home and is taken to Princeton Hospital. He refuses surgery on his ruptured aortic aneurysm and dies in his sleep at 1:15 A.M., April 18.
