Notes, topics or text 

"Einstein was not only a great scientist, he was a great man. He stood for peace in a world drifting towards war. He remained sane in a mad world, and liberal in a world of fanatics."

In the early 'forties at Princeton there were weekly meetings with Einstein and one or two other eminent physicists and BR. BR "remarked at a meeting that, when Germany had been defeated, the victors would lend money to the German Gov't and would forget the German crimes. Einstein indignantly repudiated the suggestion, but subsequent experience proved that on this occasion he was mistaken." [Remark was not included in B&R B192  but in Papers 11: 593.]
