Einstein's Daughter: The Search for Lieserl by Michele Zackheim

In 1902, an illegitimate daughter was born to Albert Einstein. In 1903, she vanished. Now, almost a century later, Michele Zackheim follows a mystery that has bewildered Einstein scholars the world over. After five years of travel to Serbian villages wracked by years of strife, painstaking forays into the labyrinth of Central European record-keeping, and hundreds of kitchen-table conversations, Zackheim answers the question of what became of Lieserl Mar'c Einstein-and offers a fascinating look into Albert Einstein's first marriage.
