"I know very well what a talented physician our Albertle is." Einstein’s cousin Elsa in a conversation with Philipp Frank, about 1917

Elsa Einstein, (18 January 1876 - 20 December 1936), was the second wife of the German phyicist, Albert Einstein. The couple were first cousins and second cousins. This is because their mothers were sisters and their fathers were first cousins. She was born in Hechingen, Germany.[1]
