Einstein 'puzzle' solved as missing page emerges

Newly revealed Albert Einstein letters provide glimpse into his genius mind

The once "lost" scribblings of a genius have been put on display, offering fresh insight into the mind of Albert Einstein.

An Israeli university on Wednesday published a manuscript allegedly written by Albert Einstein in which the famous physicist says he was "embarrassed" to learn Hebrew.

The letter included a passage that Hebrew University researchers believe to be denouncing psychoanalysis founder Sigmund Freud as a fraud. To him, the University represented a combined commitment to a Jewish identity, the pursuit of truth, and respect for all human beings.

"That's rare in scientific persona", he said.

Professor Hanoch Gutfreund, the Einstein archive's academic director, said: "For historians of science, it is very important to have manuscripts, because then one sees that he crossed out something, that he changed something, and it is interesting to see how he actually worked".

· 84 sheets, majority mathematical derivations from 1944-48.

"But in the copies we had, one page was missing, and that was a problem".

Most of the collection consists of papers with tiny hand-written mathematical calculations. Tilman Sauer at the University of Mainz.

The pre-wedding festivities began on 23 February, with a grand celebration at the St Moritz, Switzerland. We now have details of the time and place of each ceremony which will take place on the big day.

Einstein, who was one Hebrew University's founding fathers, bequeathed the university his archives, making it the world's most extensive collection of his documents, with some 80,000 items. The paper was a significant milestone in his many attempts to formulate a single unified theory for gravitation and electromagnetism.

Among the documents unveiled were a letter from 1935 to Einstein's son, Hans Albert, who was living in Switzerland at the time.

Einstein expresses concern about the deteriorating situation in Europe and the rise of the Nazi party in Germany: "I read with some apprehension that there is quite a movement in Switzerland, instigated by the German bandits".

"Let's just hope we won't have a Europe war first ... the rest of Europe is now starting to finally take the thing seriously, especially the British", Einstein declared. "If they would have come down hard a year and a half ago, it would have been better and easier".

The filed picture shows Albert Einstein and his friend Michele Besso. Three letters from 1916 talk about his work on the absorption and emission of light by atoms, which would later become the basis for laser technology.

In the same letter from 1951, Einstein tells Besso that he has "still not come closer" to fully comprehending the nature of light particles after almost 50 years of research.

There are also letters that Einstein, born in Germany in 1879, wrote to collaborators that deal with a range of scientific and personal issues, including one to his son, Hans Albert.
