Einstein’s Last Message
BY MONTY JACOBS
On the average, Albert Einstein wrote about one hundred letters
every week, answering questions, helping children with their mathe
matical problems, countering cranks, expressing his views on civil
liberties, and turning down all sorts of publicity and promotion pro
jects. He spent sever el hours a day over his correspond 3nce. There is
no doubt that many of the people who wrote to Einstein did sc
simply to solicit a reply that would provide them with a collectors'
item. One person, whose idsntily is unknown, is believed to have
secured an even more valuable item than an original Einstein letter
—an original Einstein speech, pari of it penned hours before he died.
It was to have been delivered on a nationwide hook-up over three
major television networks on April 26, and it was to be Einstein's
participation in a tribute to the State of Israel on its seventh birth
day.
Einstein, who detested and
shunned the limelight, readily
agreed to the proposal that he
should go before the television
cameras as part of the Independ
ence Day celebrations in this
country. It was suggested to him
that he should discuss Israel in

the light of its cultural and
scientific development, perhaps
noting the young republic’s con
tributions towards the use of
atomic energy for peaceful pur
poses. But Einstein had different
ileas, and he expressed himself
forthrightly in a letter replying to
the suggestion that he be f eatured
on television.
"I should like very much to as
sist our Israel cause under the
prevailing difficult and dangerous
circumstances," he wrote to the
Israeli authorities. "Ths question

would be little impressed by a
speech about merely the cultural
achisvemenls of Israel, of which
the development of atomic energy
for peaceful uses is only a special
and relatively unimportant detail.
I am saying this in consideration
of the fact that Israel-Arab diffi
cuulties are so much more in the
public consciousnsss. It seems to
me, therefore, that an evaluation
of the political situation is neces
sary to make any impression on
public opinion. I even believe that
a somewhat critical altitude con
cerning the behavior of the world
powers toward Israel and the
Arab states would have a salutary
effect. It is easier for me to say
ihese things than for a person
conneciad officially with organ
ized Jewish life."
Einstein noted that such a
speech would have to be carefully
prepared and ended, significantly,
with the hope that the arrange
ments for the television appear
ance would proceed ‘‘without loss
of precious time.” That letter was
dated April 4, 1955. One week
later, the Ambassador of Israel,
vbba Eban, and the Consul of
Israel, Reuven Dafni, went to see
Professor Einstein at his home in
Princeton. Einstein appeared in

Miss Evi Eller (left), Director for United Hias Service in Italy,
and two staff members in the agency’s office in Rome, celebrate
with leek Goldberg (right), 46, the occasion of his obtaining his
U. 8. visa. Overjoyed when he received word that the Jewish
International migration agency had finally succeeded in assisting
him to get his visa to the U. S., Mr. Goldberg felt that he had
to celebrate. He came to the United Hias office with a bottle of
vermouth and some cookies, and he and the staff toasted the
U. S. and United Hias. Mr. Goldberg and his wife, Sura, spent
years in Nazi concentration camps, but managed to survive and
returned to Poland in 1945 where a son, Marek, was born to
them in 1946.
