Join Prof. Lindenfeld Sunday October 24 at 4 pm for a Zoom discussion of his book "Fragments of Time". Register at https://peterlindenfeldfragmentsoftime.eventbrite.com
Lindenfeld's book traces his life from a secure childhood in pre-WW2 Vienna, then fleeing the Nazis in 1938, to ultimately finding a home pursuing science amidst educational and social change in which he played a role as a political and social activist often going against the grain of established rules.
A member of NJAAPT for many decades, he also taught courses for teachers here and in India, seeing himself as a bridge between the communities of high school teachers and colleges. In 1989 Lindenfeld received AAPT's Millikan award. He is co-writing a textbook for introductory physics called 'Physics: The First Science'.
