He never failed mathematics or school. In fact he personally deubunked this myth.
He never dropped out of high school. He didn’t graduate because he didn’t get the minimal grade in several subjects, but obtained exceptional grades in physics and mathematics. He then went to another school to finish his education.
He was never fired from the patent office. In fact the company made his postion permanant. He left the patent office to become Professor Extraordinary in theoretical physics at the University of Zurich.
He never was deported from Germany. He left and decided not to return because of the rise of Nazism.
The other statements here are so rediculous it makes me wonder if this is a facetious joke.
I thought so, quite relieved. I hate it when people spread those myths about him.
