Einstein Arrested Twice in 1906 for Domestic Violence
-Bern, Switzerland (AIP)
In startling new evidence uncovered by biographer Hans Grossman, it appears that Albert Einstein, the revered scientist often acknowledged as the father of modern of physics, was arrested twice in 1906 for domestic violence towards his wife at the time, Mileva.
“This is very interesting news that I have uncovered,” said Grossman. “While I was researching local public records in the hope of discovering more about Einstein’s Annus Mirabilis, I uncovered police records revealing that on two instances in 1906, Albert Eistein struck and left bloodied his wife of three years, Mileva, and was arrested for it.”
The Annus Mirabilis, or Wonderful Year, refers to the year 1905, in which Einstein, as a 26 year-old patent clerk in Bern, single-handedly wrote three papers that would later be judged as worthy of Nobel Prizes. In light of Grossman’s discoveries, however, the period that was once seen as the most productive in the physicist’s life must be reevaluated.
“Many people think that Einstein was a very kind and congenial fellow,” explains Grossman. “But the fact of the matter is that Albert Einstein was a habitual and compulsive adulterer—who fathered some fifteen children out of wedlock—and a liar who often beat his wife for what appears to be the most insignificant matters.”
Notes Grossman, “The first police report filed by Mileva on 26 February states that she merely came up to his study as he worked to ask him if he wanted some coffee, when suddenly he flew into a rage, and began choking and striking her. He also threatened to stab her with his pen.”

“The second report,” continues Grossman, “indicates that, one morning, as Einstein exited the bathroom, his wife wished him a ‘good morning’, at which, again, he flew into a fiery rage, pushing her in the face repeatedly and gouging her eyes.”
While the police reports stopped there, according to Grossman, the abuse almost certainly continued unchecked until Einstein and Mileva’s divorce in 1919, and the physicist, who won the Nobel Prize in 1921, was never again arrested.
“Oh, I have no doubt that Einstein continued persistent abuse of his wife until their divorce,” says Grossman. “To be frank, I am not surprised at these allegations. These reports clearly have been suppressed by those who wish to perpertuate Einstein’s legacy, but the fact is that the most revered scientist of all times was a brutal abuser who never hesitated to ‘teach his wife a lesson’ should she cross him in any way. He was, in many ways, pure evil personified.”
Representatives of Einstein’s trust have yet to respond to these allegations.
