Very moving Albert Einstein autograph letter signed from 1933, shortly after he escaped Nazi Germany. Written upon Waldorf Astoria, New York stationery and dated 16 March 1933, Einstein here shows his magnanimity for the German people and how they could fall under the clutches of Nazism. German letter translates in full, ''To the association of German nurses of America, Your telegram from yesterday delighted me extraordinarily, maybe the most because of the great cordiality toward me. You needn't think that I am personally, or in any way, bitter about what is happening in Germany. Like an individual, a people can lose its nerves; and in the case of the German people it really is comprehensible, considering the grave fates it had to endure. After some time this will be all over. One will rub one's eyes and say it all was just an ugly dream. Best Wishes / Yours A. Einstein''. Single-page letter measures 8.25'' x 10.5''. Toning, creasing and a few small stains to the upper half, else near fine. Handwritten letters by Einstein are extraordinarily rare, even more so with content on Nazi Germany.
