Einstein to William Frauenglass
16 Mai 1953

Frauenglass, a teacher, was subpoenaed to hearings by American authorities during the McCarthy era for his political views.

In an open letter, Einstein advises him to refuse any collaboration with such an Inquisition and to accept the consequences in order to defend intellectual freedom.
