FAMOUS REFUGEES

Not many of us know that Albert Einstein, a genius, physicist, and Nobel Laureate, was a REFUGEE. Einstein was already a famous physicist by the time Adolf Hitler rose to power in 1933. As a German Jew, however, his civil liberties were suspended and he was barred from resuming his professorship at the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Nazis also raided his property and burned his books. He fled Nazi Germany in October 1933 and took refuge in the USA. Einstein became an American citizen in 1940.

While his theory of relativity changed the world, it wasn’t his only legacy. He was also a humanitarian, and he personally helped refugees fleeing Nazi rule. His actions inspired the founding of the organization that became the International Rescue Committee (IRC) which is active all over the world today.

He published more than 300 scientific papers and more than 150 non-scientific works. His intellectual achievements and originality have made the word “Einstein” synonymous with “genius”. Einstein’s contribution to science, to the world and to America are countless and YES this is how refugees benefit the recipient countries.
