They said if we bring Einstein here, people will look at this and say, Berlin is where the action is, it's worth whatever it takes to get him here. On July 11th, 1913, two men arrived at the Zurich train station. Max Planck and Walther Nernst, a renown German Chemist. They are hoping that the personal appeal would persuade the repellence- shun scientist to reture to his German homeland.

Two men, middle- aged guys in dark clothes, luff a train, and they go find Einstein. They are so different. Max Planck is very proper Prussian, always very well dressed, well groomed, wearing the monocle, talking in a very formal tone. And whereas Einstein is refusing even back then to comb his hair and dressed in, we know, sort of old coats, however he feels like it, I'm really starting not to wear socks.

They make a great offer to him, he'll be a prefessor the ever seen in Berlin, he'll be a member of the Prussian Academy. He won't really have to teach classes and have all the research help he needs. It was Max Planck, it was Nernst, it was the Prussian Academy of Sciences, it was the entire world of physics that had said, no, bearing down and saying, we want you. Einstein did not answer the offer.

Einstein says, why don't you just go take a trip for the rest of afternoon up the mountain. He said I'll meet you at the train station when you come back. I'll be carrying a bunch of flowers. If the flowers are red, I'm coming to German, if the flowers are white, sorry don't go, thanks coming. I've made the argument. That Einstein delayed his answer to this question in part because he sort of wanted to live with pleasure of he, so deeply sought after.

But it's certainly true that this was not simply a snap decision, as he often does when he has difficult problems to solve, Einstein takes a long walk. Zurich was comfortable. There was lots to love there, you know, you don't just walk away from that. His wife really wants to stay in Zurich. On the other hand, they've offered him the greatest job imaginable.
