Albert Einstein lived and worked in Berlin for nearly two decades. These years marked the culmination of his scientific and social recognition, but were also a time of increasing political tensions. What drew him to the River Spree and kept him in the city for such a long time? In his book, Einsteins Berlin(in German) Visiting Scholar Dieter Hoffman traces more than 30 sites in Berlin through which the reader accompanies the famous scientist, getting to know his family, friends, companions, and all-important sites of his life in the capital. Numerous illustrations, photos, and city map excerpts enable a tour of one of the most important chapters of the modern history of science.
