Congratulations Hedwig Kohn! I’m honored and happy, that I was asked by google, to create the todays doodle, celebrating the 132nd birthday of the german physicist Hedwig Kohn. She was one of only three women to obtain habilitation in physics before World War II. Because of her jewish origin, she was forced to leave Germany during the Nazi regime and continued teaching after ultimately settling in the United States.
