Visit to Mileva Maric-Einstein grave site at Nordheim Fridhof Cemetery in Zurich, Switzerland on June 23, 2004
Mileva Maric-Einstein, the first wife of Albert Einstein was a Serbian scientist, mathematician, school mate and companion of Albert Einstein. Many believe she is the co-author of the Theory of Relativity. Einstein received the Nobel Prize for his Theory of Relativity and other scientific studies. He gave his wife, Mileva Maric, the money from the Nobel Prize he received but did not publicly acknowledge her scientific involvement in his work.
Mileva Maric studied with Einstein at the Polytechnic Institute in Zurich. She continued her studies in Heidelberg, Germany. She helped Einstein with many scientific ideas which led to his discoveries. She is one of the greatest woman in history.
She died in Zurich on August 4, 1948 and was buried in Nordheim Fridhof Cemetery in Zurich, Switzerland.
A historic event took place in Nordheim Fridhof Cemetery in Zurich on Mileva Maric's grave on June 23, 2004 where the Tesla Memorial Society of Switzerland organized a visit to the grave of Mileva Maric with the purpose of erecting the gravestone of Mileva Maric-Einstein grave. Mileva Maric's gravestone was removed by the cemetery for many years because of non-payment of the grave.
