Comments:
The sign is one of the signs on both sides of the boulevard of Nobel Laureates, and dedicated to Jewish Nobel laureates. Click for sign's details

It seems that the content in the second plaque was copied one by one from Wikipedia (in Hebrew), which is a pity that only the first paragraph was copied, and not the rest dealing with the books he wrote and for which he received the Nobel Prize.

The boulevard was photographed about two months before the sign was taken by the same photographer Click for a larger image
