Einstein’s Letter on Auction – level 2
A letter from Albert Einstein to a young woman is up for auction. He wrote the letter by hand in 1921 and it shows his feelings for the woman.
She was 22 years old and a daughter of a famous chemist in Florence. The genius wanted to meet her, but she did not want to meet him because she was modest and did not want to meet famous people.
Einstein also left her a note which read: ‘To the scientific researcher, at whose feet I lay and sat for two full days…’
A typed letter from Einstein sold for 1.3 million US dollars at auction.
