Q:

When was Albert Einstein born?

A:

Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Württemberg, Germany on March 14,1879. He grew up in a middle-class Jewish family. His father was an engineer and a salesman, while his mother was a housewife.

One of Einstein's masterworks is the theory of relativity, which was completed in November 1915. In 1921, he received a Nobel Prize for Physics. He passed away on April 18, 1955, after refusing surgical intervention for an abdominal aortic aneurysm. During the autopsy, Thomas Stoltz removed the brain without permission from Einstein's family. Stoltz preserved the brain to be studied by doctors of neuroscience, and it's still being kept at the Princeton University Medical Center as of 2014.
