Bernhad Caesar's children[edit]

In front of me is a physical copy of the monograph by Princeton University Press whose citation I had given at "Their children were Thomas (1955- ), Paul (1958- ), Teddy (1960- ), Myra, and Charles."[1] Indeed a family tree is shown on page xxiii. Perhaps the children are those of Bernhard Caesar's wife Doris Ascher(1930- ) and not his? This would seem very unlikely since this same tree diagram is careful to avoid showing a direct "tree" connection in another case where children are those of one spouse but not the other.

Namely, this same tree shows Elsa Einstein-Lowenthal and her children Ilse and Margot but the tree is careful to show the "trunk"of the tree connected only to Elsa Lowenthal and not to Albert Einstein himself, which is correct since Albert Einstein was not the father of Margot and Ilse. Similarly if Bernhard Caesar was not the father of "Thomas, Paul, Teddy, Myra, Charles" then the tree trunk in the diagram should come down from a separate entry for Bernhard Caesar's wife Doris Ascher (there is plenty of space at this row) rather than froma joint cell belonging to Bernhad Caesar and his wife Doris Ascher.

So it appears that either there is a mistake in this diagram in this highly respected book (which is conceivable) or else Bernhard Caesar did father some children, and while I sympathize with their possibly wanting privacy, the wikipedia entry (if this is the case) should indicate that Bernhard Casar is the last grandson but not the last direct descendant of Albert Einstein. If someone(s) has additional information as to which of these it is (or other possibilities I have not included) and have references, please do add them.--Harel (talk) 01:42, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Strange[edit]

Bernhard's ethnicity is said to be "European" and he seems to have had only two grand-parents. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.194.34.71 (talk) 12:54, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

ethniticity is definitely a non notable fact on a physicist article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.230.240.97 (talk) 02:48, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Question?[edit]

Why is the overwhelming majority of this article, ostensibly about Bernhard Einstein, dedicated to discussing other people? 24.99.31.106 (talk) 03:52, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Agreed! If this man was a physicist by profession, surely he published papers. What sort of work did he do? What contributions did he make to science? 98.85.40.107 (talk) 05:53, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

He came out of a vagina, that had been touched by a man who came out of a vagina, that had been touched by Albert Einstein. Clearly, this is his significance. I don't really care what he published, this familial relationship was plenty significant for me to want to look him up, and I'm really glad I found him and a picture.

Untitled[edit]

"Bernhard" Einstein was known officially as Bernard, on his passports. drivers licenses, social security card, etc.

I appreciate edit by sgeureka. I wonder if you or anyone could fix problem with photo. There is a heading above the photo that looks like some extraneous html code. Can this be eliminated?

thanks

Request for Comments[edit]

There is an RfC on the question of using "Religion: None" vs. "Religion: None (atheist)" in the infobox on this and other similar pages.

The RfC is at Template talk:Infobox person#RfC: Religion infobox entries for individuals that have no religion.

Please help us determine consensus on this issue. --Guy Macon (talk) 19:39, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
