Yes. Of course. (Except for the first person.)

Anders, see <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Einstein#World_War_II>:

"In 1933, the Nazis passed "The Law of the Restoration of the Civil
Service," which forced all Jewish university professors out of their
jobs. Throughout the 1930s, a campaign to label Einstein's work as
"Jewish physics"—in contrast with "German" or "Aryan physics"—was led by
Nobel laureates Philipp Lenard and Johannes Stark. With the assistance
of the SS, the Deutsche Physik supporters worked to publish pamphlets
and textbooks denigrating Einstein's theories and attempted to
politically blacklist German physicists who taught them, notably Werner
Heisenberg."
