4 0 4 D O C U M E N T S 4 5 3 , 4 5 4 M A R C H 1 9 2 9 453. “Professor Einstein and Ulm” [Einstein 1929q] Dated 18 March 1929[1] Published 20 March 1929 In: Ulmer Abendpost 6, no. 67 (20 March 1929): [7]. The city of one’s birth is attached to one’s life as something just as unique as the ancestry of one’s biological mother. We also owe the city of our birth a part of our nature.[2] Thus I remember Ulm with gratitude, because it combines a noble artistic tradition with a simple and healthy character. 454. To Heinrich Friedmann Berlin, 18 March 1929 Dear Mr. Friedmann, Your congratulations have deeply moved and delighted me.[1] How vividly did my youthful days in Munich rise up out of the past and how often have I regretted not having been more diligent in studying our fathers’ language and literature! I of- ten read the Bible, but the original text has remained inaccessible to me. That is truly not your fault you fought valiantly and energetically against laziness and monkey business. Cordially wishing you peaceful and carefree days, your A. Einstein
