Changes in 2019

From 1 January 2019, the Einstein House will be managed by Tatsiana Widmer. The previous director Jürg Rub retires after 13 years for age reasons.

Under his direction, the memorial at Kramgasse 49 was able to attract a massive increase in visitors. The Executive Board of the Albert Einstein Society thanks Jürg Rub for his great commitment and is pleased to have found a highly qualified successor in Tatsiana Widmer.
