A flyer about Albert Einstein
He and his parents lived in Italy for some time and eventually moved to Zurich, Switzerland for school. Einstein graduated from Zurich Polytechnic in August 1900. For the next few years he worked temporary teaching positions while working on the kinetic theory of gases. Some of the most productive years of his career were 1903-1905 when he published a few papers that would change everyone's understanding of physics. They were Brownian motion, quantum theory, and special relativity. In the mid to late 1910's he worked on the general theory of relativity. In the early 1920's, a group of anti-Semitic fanatics led by Paul Weyland discredited relativity as a "Jewish theory". In 1921 he won a Nobel Prize for his work on quantum theory. Einstein spent the 1920's participating in several peace campaigns and writing articles on international peace and disarmament. He was invited to the League of Nations Committee on Intellectual Cooperation and was disappointed when the League of Nations did not accomplish their goals. He went back to religion (in a nontraditional way) and became a prominent activist for the education of Jews and remained one for the rest of his life

The Theory of Relativiity
Einstein's most famous equation.
His beliefs were not traditional and to put it bluntly, confusing.
