Albert Einstein grew up in a secular Jewish family. His

father named Hermann Einstein, was a salesman and engineer

In 1900 he graduated with a degree in mathematics and
physics but at that time he failed to get teaching jod at a Albert Einstein

In 1905, Einstein’s Miraculous Year. Annus Mirabilis – a name given only to a few years
in history. Einstein single-handedly added one to the list. In may, it was in this year that Albert
Einstein made important discoveries concerning the photoelectric effect (quantum theory of light,
the idea that light exists as photons), Brownian motion (proved the existence of atoms), the special
theory of relativity, and the famous E = mc2 equation. His four articles, collectively known as
his Annus Mirabilis papers, were published in Annalen der Physik, all in 1905.
After those years finally he became a doctorate at the university of Zurich in 1906 and
doctorate at the university of Berlin two years later. He hot eight awards related to his discoveries,
the most famous was Nobel Prize in Physics that he got in 1922 for discovering the photoelectric
Effect. Although Albert Einstein got a lot of awards, Since World War 1 began he became
