The immigration card belonging to Albert Einstein was recently discovered at Heathrow Airport.
On May 25, 1933, Nobel Prize winner and father of modern physics, Albert Einstein landed in Dover, England on the run from Nazis who wanted to kill him. His destination: Oxford. After 80 years, the immigration card listing Einstein's information was discovered at Heathrow Airport where it was quickly snagged by curators and now resides in Liverpool's Merseyside Maritime Museum.
Immigration papers from when Albert Einstein dramatically fled Nazi Germany have been discovered after being unknowingly stored away for almost 80 years. Border chiefs at Heathrow airport were left stunned by the discovery of the landing card, which marks the legendary scientist's arrival in the UK.
