Einstein on the run: Oxford, Britain and Nazi Germany

Thursday 12 December 2019, 6pm 

Evening Talk

Einstein’s blackboard is the History of Science Museum’s most famous object. Yet it tells us relatively little of Einstein’s relationship with Oxford and Britain. British science inspired young Einstein’s physics; in 1919, British astronomers made him world famous; in 1933, Britain saved his life from Nazi death threats by offering him sanctuary—first in Oxford, then in rural Norfolk. Andrew Robinson, author of the first study of Einstein and Britain, 'Einstein on the Run', explores the full story.
