Since the 1930s, world-famous physicists have been suspected of being spies by the FBI.
The main contents of the suspicion are: once worked as a spy for the Soviet Union in Berlin, Germany.
Support the civil rights movement, pacifists and socialists.
Study a kind of “death light” with magical power.
And a Communist group trying to run Hollywood.
Therefore, the Bureau of investigation once tracked, monitored and monitored Einstein, but until Einstein’s death, there was no favorable evidence.
In September 2002, a book called “Einstein Archives: Edgar Hoover’s secret war against the world’s most famous scientists” met readers.
It deeply analyzed all the FBI investigations into Einstein that year and provided enough evidence to expose people’s curiosity about the case.
Fred Jerome, author of “Einstein’s Archives: Edgar Hoover’s secret war against the world’s most famous scientists”, is a journalist covering the civil rights movement.
He has worked as a teacher and media consultant, and has established a media resource center to promote mutual understanding between journalists and scientists.
Jerome said he got the investigation documents about Einstein from the government and FBI with the help of American citizen litigation organization.
After careful study, Jerome said that contrary to his imagination, Einstein, as an idealist, was actually a well-informed, smart and calm soldier.
He knew what kind of organization he should support.
Jerome has not been a competent FBI director since the establishment of the FBI in 1924.
However, Jerome has not been a competent FBI director since 1958.
The investigation of Einstein was his order.
At his instigation, the FBI checked Einstein’s garbage and monitored his emails and phone calls.
Jerome said it seems to be a routine for the FBI.
“Intelligence agents open other people’s emails and listen to the phone, just like they get up and brush their teeth in the morning.
” The FBI’s surveillance of Einstein did not end until his death in 1955.
However, the FBI didn’t get any evidence.
Although the investigation did not produce any results, Hoover, based on personal assumptions, had the idea of expelling Einstein with the United States immigration and Naturalization Service during this period.
However, due to Einstein’s prestige, this idea did not come true.
To say that Einstein was related to communism was actually related to the historical environment at that time.
At that time, there were two camps of capitalism and communism in the world.
They both won the respect of the people of the world and were working hard to create human peace.
As a scientist, there is no reason to favor any political system as much as a politician.
So did Einstein.
Jerome’s book mentions Einstein’s relationship with communism.
The book mentions that the FBI’s investigation document on Einstein is 1427 pages long.
According to the document, Einstein was associated with the Communist Party.
From 1937 to 1954, he has been a member, initiator or associated with 34 Communist organizations.
He is also the honorary chairman of three Communist organizations.
But the FBI declined to comment explicitly on the content.
An FBI spokesman said they were left to the public to evaluate the material.
In Jerome’s book, Einstein is a man who hates war very much.
Einstein did not hide his aversion to war all his life.
Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm, Germany, to Jewish parents.
As a teenager, he was educated in Munich and transferred to Switzerland in October 1895.
It is said that part of the reason is that he doesn’t like German militarism.
In April 1914, Einstein, who became famous, accepted the invitation of the German scientific community and returned to Berlin.
World War I broke out in August of that year.
In the second month after the outbreak of World War I, Einstein participated in launching the anti war group “new motherland alliance”, which was later declared illegal.
A large number of its members were arrested and persecuted, so the organization was forced to move underground.
In this case, Einstein still resolutely participated in the secret activities of the organization.
In October 1914, under the manipulation and incitement of militarists, the German scientific and cultural circles issued the so-called “Declaration of a civilized world” to defend the war of aggression launched by Germany.
93 people signed the “Declaration”, and many world-renowned German celebrities, including roentgen, Planck and St, signed it, but Einstein resolutely refused.
While refusing, he signed his name on the anti war letter to the Europeans, becoming one of the only four internationally renowned signatories of the letter to the Europeans.
Einstein’s behavior immediately shook the world.
Since then, despite his busy work, Einstein still attended some activities devoted to peace and disarmament from time to time.
In 1931, when he was teaching at Oxford University for a short time, he participated in more activities for peace than scientific conferences.
In August 1945, the American atomic bomb exploded in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, causing unprecedented disasters in the history of human war.
When the news came, Einstein was extremely shocked.
Although he did not directly participate in the “Manhattan Project” of the United States to develop the atomic bomb, his famous mass energy equation E = MC2 is the theoretical basis of Einstein’s head (stone carving) for the manufacture of the atomic bomb.
Einstein immediately wrote to the Atlantic Monthly and said, “I’m worried about a new war.
” In 1955, Einstein and the famous British philosopher Russell jointly issued the Russell Einstein declaration against nuclear war and calling for world peace.
After the end of the Second World War, Einstein continued to actively participate in a variety of social activities.
In 1946, he supported black singers, actors and athletes to unite against lynching.
In 1952, he publicly called for the exemption of Julius Rosenberg and his wife, who were sentenced to death for espionage.
Jerome’s book said that perhaps it was because of this that Hoover thought Einstein was a leftist, a figure with communist consciousness, that is, a “dangerous person”.
Hoover wrote a letter summarizing Einstein’s anti war and left-wing activities, and drew up an unsigned and undated “biographical outline”.
Remember, in the early 1930s, that is, love.
