Israel university upgrades Einstein archive

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem on Monday launched an updated version of its online Einstein Archives website, providing access to more than 80,000 documents connected to the seminal physicist.

One of the founders of the Hebrew University, Albert Einstein bequeathed all his writings and intellectual heritage to the institution.

The new website will enable the public to access 40,000 documents sourced from Einstein's personal papers, and over 30,000 additional Einstein and Einstein-related items discovered since the 1980s, Hebrew University said.

Among the new documents available through the website are Einstein's 1930 letter to the editor of the newspaper Falastin, on the Jewish-Arab conflict, a postcard to his sick mother, and a letter from a young mistress.

The archive can be accessed on http://alberteinstein.info
