    Aage Bohr

    Jew Score:



    June 19, 1922 – September 8, 2009

    All the way back in 2008, we profiled Niels Bohr, physicist, Nobel laureate, friend of Einstein. You might have heard of him.

    In 2013, we profiled Harald Bohr, mathematician, soccer Olympian. A little more obscure than brother Niels, but he won a silver medal, so not too shabby.

    Today, in 2020, we are profiling Aage Bohr, physicist, Nobel laureate. He is the son of Niels, making them a rarity — father and son both winning the Nobel.

    Are we done with Bohrs? It seems likely. There is the first famous Bohr, Christian, the father of Niels and Harald, a physiologist, but he was not Jewish at all. There's Aage's brother Ernest, a lawyer and field hockey player who represented Denmark its last-place finish at the 1948 Olympics, but that's neither here nor there. There's Aage's son Thomas, another physicist...

    If Thomas Bohr ever wins that Nobel, he'll get a profile, we guarantee it.

    Verdict: Borderline Jew.
