Apparently, Intelligence doesn't cure Antisemitism

In the summer of 1922 Lenard had written to the Nobel committee that Einstein was a “publicity-seeking Jew whose approach was alien to the true nature of German physics.”
Philipp Lenard (June 7, 1862 – May 20, 1947) was a German physicist and the winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1905 for his research on cathode rays and the discovery of many of their properties.

I long had the belief that the best revenge a Jew can have for anti-semitism is to succeed. The bigger the better. Who today heard of Lenard, and who hasn't heard of Einstein?
