ALBERT EINSTEIN (1879-), German-Swiss physicist, was born of Jewish parents at Ulm in the kingdom of Wurttemberg on May 14 1879.
The family migrated to Italy in 1894, whilst Albert Einstein went to the Cantonschule at Aarau in Switzerland, where he passed the abiturienten examination, the indispensable preliminary to any professional career in Central Europe, two years later.
(For the " Michelson-Morley experiment, " in interference of light, with its bearing on the Einstein theory, see RELATIVITY.)
Albert Einstein reflected this when he famously said, "I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones."
As Alfred Einstein once observed, "Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war."
