A note written by Albert Einstein in 1921 to an Italian scientist who had refused to meet him has sold for USD 6,100 at an auction in Jerusalem.

阿尔伯特·爱因斯坦于1921年写给一位拒绝与他会面的意大利科学家的一张字条,在耶路撒冷拍卖会上以6,100美元的价格卖出。

The Nobel-winning scientist, then 42, wrote to Elisabetta Piccini, a 22-year-old chemistry student.

这位获得诺贝尔奖的科学家,当时42岁,写信给22岁的化学学生伊丽莎白·皮奇尼。

Ms Piccini lived one floor above his sister, Maja, in Florence.

皮奇尼女士住在佛罗伦萨的爱因斯坦的姐姐玛雅的楼上。

"Einstein was very interested in meeting her. [But] Ms Piccini was too shy to meet with such a famous person" Winner’s auction house said.

“爱因斯坦非常有兴趣和她见面,[但]皮奇尼太害羞了,不敢与这样一位有名的人见面。”Winner拍卖行表示。

In the letter written in his native German, Einstein uses an idiom signalling affection.

在用他的母语德语写的信中,爱因斯坦用俚语表达了他的感情。

"To the scientific researcher, at whose feet I slept and sat for two full days, as a friendly souvenir," the note to Ms Piccini said.

“一份友善的纪念礼物,献给这位科学研究者。我为之倾倒,静候整整两日。”给皮奇尼女士的字条这样写道。

"You know nowadays the ’Me Too’ campaign? Probably Einstein would have been in this campaign by leaving such a note to this lady," Gal Wiener, chief executive of Winner’s, told the Associated Press news agency.

“你知道现在的’我也是’运动吗?可能爱因斯坦也会参加这个活动,为这位女士留下这张字条,”Winner拍卖公司首席执行官Gal Wiener告诉美联社。

The note was sold alongside a number of other letters from Einstein, including a 1928 note in which Einstein set out his thoughts for his "Third Stage of the Theory of Relativity" which was auctioned off for USD 103,000.

该字条与爱因斯坦的其它一些信件一起出售,其中包括1928年的一张字条,爱因斯坦在其中提到了他的“相对论第三阶段”的想法,该作品被拍卖103,000美元。
