EINSTEIN, ALBERT. 1879-1955.
Typed Letter Signed ("A. Einstein") in German, 1 p, 4to, Princeton, N.J. 8 October, 1952, a note recommending Professor Paul Rosenstein's autobiography, mailing folds.

Einstein's favorable recommendation reads: "Professor Paul Rosenstein has given me an insight into the content of his autobiographical book. The episodes and circumstances outlined in it are, in my opinion, a rather considerable contribution to the cultural history of Germany and the German Jews in this century. It is the work of an unbiased, understanding and benevolent man." Paul Rosenstein (1875-1964) a well established German-Jewish urologist and head of the surgical department of the Berlin Jewish Hospital until 1938, fled Nazi Germany and emigrated to Brazil (Rio de Janeiro) in 1940. His autobiography Narben bleiben zurück : Die Lebenserinnerungen des grossen jüdischen Chirurgen was published in Germany in 1954. Einstein's recommendation was printed and loosely inserted in the first edition.
