Einstein immigration papers found

Recently discovered immigration papers documenting Albert Einstein’s 1933 escape from Nazi Germany are being displayed for the first time – at a Liverpool museum. The German-born Jewish scientist fled his native country after Hitler labelled him an enemy of the regime. The landing card, issued when he arrived at Dover, was discovered at Heathrow Airport. It is being exhibited at Merseyside Maritime Museum in Liverpool. The card, signed by the Nobel Prize-winning physicist, records Einstein’s arrival from Belgium on 23 May, 1933. It lists his profession as “Professor” and his nationality as “Swiss”. Einstein, who died in 1955, settled in the United States after spending a period under armed protection in England. His 1921 Nobel Prize was awarded for his services to theoretical physics.
