Despite his über-human status as a genius, the new documents demonstrate that Einstein lived as many of us live, replete with love trials and speculative political solutions. Included in the papers are "24 love letters the scientist wrote to his cousin, Elsa Einstein, with whom he conducted an affair for several years before finally divorcing his first wife, Mileva Maric, and remarrying in 1919." Einstein also proposed a secret council of Jews and Arabs to achieve peace in the region. The council would consist of a physician, a jurist, a trade unionist and a cleric from either side and hold weekly meetings.
