Download PDF for this date

Professor Albert Einstein’s new book, “Mein Weltbild,” was banned in Bavaria today by order of the Nazi governor as “harmful to the people and the State.”

The banned volume contains a collection of essays by the famous scientist on philosophy, politics and pacifism, Germany in 1933 and science and the Jews.

In the United States the book was published under the title, “The World as I See It.”
