Wife and two daughters of Jewish physicist’s cousin were murdered by Nazis in Italy in 1944. Einstein family now offering €5,000 reward for information about murder

The family of Jewish physicist Albert Einstein is offering a €5,000 ($6,850) reward for information about the murder of three members of Einstein’s family by Nazi soldiers in 1944. The wife and two daughters of Eisntein’s cousin Robert were murdered in August 3, 1944 near Florence, Italy. Authorities have been investigating the murder since 2007 when new evidence surfaced, and have largely managed to reconstruct the events of the day of the murder.
