dc.description At his home (112 Mercer Street) in Princeton, New Jersey, one day before his seventieth birthday, Albert Einstein is visited by a group of World War II European Jewish refugee children. Kneeling on Einstein's right is the National Chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, William Rosenwald. United Service for New Americans, an agency of the UJA, brought the children to the United States. Second from the left is Einstein's cousin, Elizabeth Kerzek. The two were distant relatives and hadn't met before. The name of the girl seated on Einstein's lap is Victoria Lustig and Leonora Aragones and is seated on his rightt. The others featured in this photograph have not been identified. Newspaper accounts of the occasion feature different images from the visit and credit the photographs to various sources, most often news agencies. (Note: this photograph is one of fifteen in the collection, EB 127-EB 141, taken on this occasion.)
