LIVERPOOL.-
Immigration documents relating to Albert Einstein’s dramatic escape from Nazi Germany have been discovered and will go on show for the very first time at Merseyside Maritime Museum. Einstein, one of the most prominent figures of the last century, fled from his native Germany when Adolph Hitler came to power. The scientist, who was Jewish, arrived in England while a bounty had been put on his head by the Nazis who named him an enemy of the regime. UK Border Agency National Museum (Seized! The Border and Customs uncovered) is located in the basement of the Merseyside Maritime Museum at Albert Dock. The landing card is on display from Tuesday 10 May.  Visit : http://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/maritime/
