Hitler's barbarity against Jews persuaded many scientists and intellectuals to leave Germany, among them Nobel prize winning physicist Albert Einstein. Here he disembarks in New York on a visit in 1930; when Hitler came to power in 1933, Einstein was teaching in the U.S., and stayed. In 1939, he sent his famous letter of concern to FDR that ultimately led to the atomic bomb project - a letter that the pacifist Einstein later said he wished he had not written. #alberteinstein
THE FRIDAY QUOTATION YES It could happen any time, tornado, earthquake, Armagedden. It could happen. Or sunshine, love, salvation. It could, you know. That’s why we wake and look out and—no guarantees in this life. But some bonuses, like morning, like right now, like evening.
