Margatita Konenkova and Albert Einstein
Love without borders
In 1998 love letters by Albert Einstein were consigned to Sotheby's auction house and became public.
There were 9 letters written in 1945 and 1946 by Albert Einstein, the physicist who formulated the theory of relativity,
to Margarita Konenkova. The letters were a sensation discovering that that Einstein, greatest mathematician of his age and Konenkova,
a Russian emigre living in New York, were lovers.
According to a book by a former Soviet spy master, Mrs. Konenkova was a Russian agent whose mission was to introduce Einstein
to the Soviet vice consul in New York.
The historians believe Konnenkova dated Einstein in the 1940s in order to gain information on the top-secret Manhattan Project, the U.S. effort to develop the first nuclear bomb.
The letters were consigned by a member of Mrs. Konenkova's family who has chosen to remain anonymous.
The notes, written in elegant German script and preserved in their aged blue envelopes, reveal a sensitive man who
writes with humor, warmth and candor about his daily life and his undying love.
'Just recently I washed my head by myself, but not with the greatest success; I am not as careful as you are,'
he wrote on Nov. 27, 1945. ''But everything here reminds me of you: 'Almar's shawl, the dictionaries, the wonderful pipe
that we thought was gone, and really all the many little things in my hermit's cell;
and also the lonely nest.'
(Almar was apparently a pet name the two had devised for each other, made up of their combined names: Albert and Margarita.)
Margatita Konnenkova, ususally referred to as Russian Spy Lover was born in 1884.
She was a wife of a famous Soviet Sculptor
Segey Konnenkov who came to the USA to work on a bronze bust of Einstein for Princeton University.
The couple lived in the United States from the mid-1920s to 1945.
Einstein's nine letters to Konenkova were written between November 1945 and July 1946, just after she returned to Moscow,
when Einstein was 66 and she 51. None of her letters to him are known to have survived.
It is not clear from the letters how long the two were romantically involved, although they met around 1935.
The physicist's second wife, Elsa, died in 1936.
Margarita Konenkova succeeded in introducing Einstein to the Soviet vice council in New York, who was also a spy.
But Einstein had no secrets to share, not is there any evidence that he had any inclinations at all to help the Soviets in any way and he rebuffed her attempt to have him visit Moscow.
After the end of the WWII Margarita and Sergey Konnenkov left the USA.
The researchers claim that Einstein finally met the Soviet consul for the sake of Margarita.
Margarita disclosed her mission and Einstein realized that not performing the order would cause punishment for his last love.
Margarita died in 1980 in Moscow, much later then Einstein and her husband.

There are many beautiful women in different nations, but Russian beauty has its own peculiarities and distinctive features.
Since ancient times, many artists and poets admired the extraordinary beauty and intelligence of a Russian girl, and It's not just that she is very beautiful by nature.
Russian girls are able to downcast eyes like delinquent children, it seems they are about to cry, their eyes barely restrain turquoise tears that came out of the permafrost, centuries of grief.
Many ordinary Russian traditions evoke surprise and incomprehension of foreigners.
Russian women love to dress up. For example, a nice dress and high heels they consider appropriate attire for a simple stroll or even for ordinary trip to the store.
Russian girl is a flower, leaning over the weak men, they forgive them and twirl them as they wish.
True love feeling will evolve if you find the right partner. It's not easy and it takes a lot of time. Joint travel can greatly help with this.
Almost everyone loves to travel, and the young, attractive girls, probably more than anyone else.
This is, perhaps, not only because they are the most receptive to everything new, beautiful and unknown,
not hamstrung by conventions and stereotypes, but also due to the fact that unlike others may travel not only to something see but also be seen.
