Einstein Brain Thief

Genius, creative power, intelligent, brilliant, expert, walking encyclopedia, All the words here can be replaced by only one word Einstein. No doubt he was extraordinary, but he was born fathead. Albert did not speak until the age of three. He revealed this fact about the delay of his speech abilities to his biographer. Doctors told his parents that he is not normal child, he is special and he will not be as smart as normal children. Today there is a term, Einstein Syndrome,” which was coined by Dr. Thomas Sowell, to describe exceptionally bright people whose speech is delayed.  

 April 18th, 1955 was the day when we lost the Einstein. During his autopsy his brain got missing.

Who stole Einstein’s brain?

A pathologist Thomas Stoltz Harvey stole Einstein’s brain. Harvey took the brain without permission of his family. After some days this news got viral that someone has stole the most genius brain. After that Harvey lost his job. Then he tried to convince Albert’s son Harz Albert, that the brain will be used for good purpose. Then Harvey took the brain to Philadelphia, where it was carved into 240 pieces and preserved in celloidin, a hard and rubbery form of cellulose.

Although Einstein never wanted this to happen.

He never wanted that people will preserve his body. Einstein believed and wished that people should be respected for their humanitarian work and thoughts, and not for their nationality and origin. He didn’t want his brain or body to be studied, didn’t want to be worshiped. “Albert had left behind specific instructions regarding his remains: cremate them, and scatter the ashes secretly in order to discourage idolaters,” writes Brian Burrell in his 2005 book, Postcards from the Brain Museum.
