Just before World War I, the Germans offered Albert Einstein tenure and more money than he'd ever seen to come to Berlin. So, Einstein took a job at the university, eventually earning the Nobel Prize which was a turning point in his life --- now he was famous.
The world knew his face and trusted his science.
When Adolf Hitler took over Germany as chancellor, Einstein happened to be visiting the United States, and he decided to stay. Proudly antiwar and in America, Einstein took pen to paper, writing President Roosevelt about the potential evils of his own discoveries --- and the Manhattan Project was born.
Within four years, the United States had developed the world's first atomic bomb. Einstein wrestled for the rest of his days with the breakthrough science that had the power to save lives by taking lives.
