“The talented Dr. Maja Winteler-Einstein, sister of the “great Albert”, could only lead a “small life” as a wife. As confidante of her ingenious brother, she saw him in a special light. This illustrated biography is the first publication on Albert Einstein's sister and appears in the globally recognized Einstein Year 2005.

Maja Einstein was the warm sun for her friends. She belonged to the avant-garde and acquired a doctoral hat. With her husband, the lawyer and painter Paul Winteler, she got out of bourgeois city life and created her rural paradise in Florence. Despite alert intelligence, rich talents and great social skills, she lived a purely family life. As a woman, your options were limited. Maja was lifelong confidante of her brother Albert, this brilliant scientist and unfit family man. Viewed through the eyes of the sister, many new facets appear: egotistical, amiable, time-related. The Einstein siblings were closely involved in their families. Sorrowful, the clans have to cope with personal and political blows of fate: mental illness, infant death and murder, poverty and Nazi persecution. This biography is based on unknown letters and interviews as well as unpublished photos and is an exciting life story typical of the time. "
