    Clarification On page 824 in the issue of 19 October 2000, a photograph of Max Planck flanked by two uniformed Nazis appears with the caption: “Close ties: Max Planck (centre) at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Metal Research in 1935.” This wording implies that Planck might have been a Nazi sympathizer. This was not the case — in fact Planck resigned his post as president of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institutes in 1937 in protest at the Nazis' treatment of Jewish scientists.
