Odd assembly 
Hi. I'm studying physics at a university, and we are currently studying relativity. In our book, there is a place where it reads
"the 80th Assembly of German Natural Scientists and Physicians"
I refind this sentence on this particular Wikipedia page. I think it is odd, because a physician is a medical doctor, unlike a physicist, who does physics.
Perhaps this assembly really did consist of natural scientists and physicians, but I find it more likely to have consisted of natural scientists and physicists. I find both occurrences on Google, but can anyone reading this tell the correct name of the assembly?

supposed Jewish and Polish-ness 
- Nonsense, a simple Google reveals hundreds of instances of their Jewishness, even the German wiki agrees. Sorry Ernham :) Greenman 13:07, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
You know that it is possible to be both German and Jewish--Cronholm144 02:11, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
- The reference provided does not cite original sources in this matter. I had assumed Minkowski was Jewish, but when I attempted to verify this, it was no longer clear. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 04:49, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
Hilbert's obituary 
I have included a translation of Hilbert's orbituary on his death because I thought that it shows impressively the deep friendship between these two mathematicians. Could an English native speaker please correct my supposedly bumpy translation?

Non native English myself, but i think the end of last sentence doesn't quite sound right. google translate, while failing miserably on the rest of the paragraph, puts forth "that his spirit continues to work in us" which i think is correct translation. Maybe native english speaker can have a look at this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:02, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
