Erwin Rudolf Josef Alexander Schrödinger, sometimes written as Erwin Schrodinger or Erwin Schroedinger, was a Nobel Prize-winning Austrian-Irish physicist who developed a number of fundamental results in quantum theory: the Schrödinger equation provides a way to calculate the wave function of a system and how it changes dynamically in time.
Hilberg was very much a lonesome man, pursuing solitary hobbies such as geography, music and train spotting. Though his parents attended synagogue on occasion, he personally found the irrationality of religion repellent and developed an allergy to it. He did however attend a Zionist school in Vienna, which inculcated the necessity of defending against, rather than surrendering to, the rising menace of Nazism.
Adolf Hitler was the ruler of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. During his dictatorship, Hitler initiated military policies that led to World War II and the deaths of at least 11 million people, including the genocide of an estimated 6 million Jews. Hitler's death by suicide near the end of the war brought an end to his fascist regime.
