EINSTEIN, Albert (1879-1955). Typed document signed (“A. Einstein”), Berlin, 18 December 1929. 1 page, 4to. In German.
EINSTEIN ENDORSES THE ESPERANTO MOVEMENT in this statement devised by the “organization for the adoption of an International Language for Clarification and Increased understanding for freedom and Unity Among people.” Here Einstein says, “I hereby declare my willing to join the Honorary Board of the federation for the introduction of an international auxiliary language…” Long an opponent of nationalism, Einstein throughout his life championed efforts at world government and the elimination of the often deadly divisions that national leaders erected between peoples.
