    Hitler took the power of Germany on 30th january 1933.He enforced the law for the restoration of professional civil services & thereby politicized the education system of Germany.After the enforcement of this law several talented scientists emigrated from Germany.One of them is Albert Einstein, the greatest scientists the world has ever seen.And due to Einstein's concept,USA had developed the Atom Bomb,which played a major role in the second world war.What would be the result of second world war if Einstein would be with Hitler ?

    Yikes that is even scary to think about. I think we would be in a lot of trouble if Hitler had gotten ahold of Einstein and his knowledge and the war would have probably turned out drastically different.

    I am sure Einstein had dealings with Hitler and knew his intensions of starting a war, so he got out at the first opportunity. He probably thought that the atom bomb would be better used by the USA for quite the oppersite reasons to which Hitler wanted it?

    Thankfully it would probably never have happened. The Nazi's Anti-Semitic rhetroric was well known in Germany before the seizure of power in 1933. And of course Hitler had already made his feelings perfectly clear in "Mein Kampf" about the Jews. The reason why most of the top Jewish scientists and academics left Germany in the late 20's & early 30's was because they could see the writing on the wall. The nearest that Germany actually came to producing Nuclear Weapons was through the efforts of Danish scientist Nils Bohr and German Werner Heisenberg. When their conversations were taped post war it was found that they were far behind the Allies in development. A good thing for us ...
