Reports that Professor Albert Einstein left Berlin because he had been threatened with assassination by anti-Semitic organizations are denied in quarters close to the noted Jewish scientist.

It is also denied that Professor Einstein visited Moscow. It is true he was invited to visit Soviet Russia, but he declined, according to a statement by Professor Ehrenfest with whom Einstein is staying at Leyden, Holland. Professor Ehrenfest confirms that Professor Einstein has left Germany in order that he may study quietly and that the scientist had not been to Russia.
