With his general theory of relativity, Albert Einstein is the symbol of genius. Being honored with the Nobel Prize in physics made him famous and firmed-up his reputation as a genius. Though Albert Einstein is remembered mostly as being a scientist, he was also concerned with helping people. During World War II, he assisted many Jews fleeing the Nazis. After the war, the people of Israel asked him to be their president. Einstein declined; he still had unanswered scientific questions to solve. Today, scientists are still hard at work trying to solve some of Einstein's questions.
