Wissenschaft am Abgrund: Weltkrieg und Revolution
Einstein’s Stance on Destitution in Germany after World War I
Postcard to Paul Ehrenfest, 6 December 1918, reproduction
Einstein’s willingness to request support from the Entente for Germans suffering from hardship in 1918 shows that his political stance was committed to humanitarian ideals and not founded on resentments or ideologies. Einstein is respected by the former war opponents, which German foreign policy tries to take advantage of later.
