Not sure but for those interested in the history of science maybe something on the house on Västra gatan 9 (in the "old town") where Jewish and Austrian nuclear phycist Lise Meitner, in exile because of the Nazis, stayed over Christmas 1938 and met fellow phycisist and nephew Otto Frisch. They supposedly discussed nuclear fission and Lise Meitned had som crucial insight during the visit (which was one step in the development which led to the atomic bomb). There is supposed to be some official sign on that house. Source: "Kungälv - En stads historia", Kerstin Berg, Harry Berg, 1992, page 143-144 (in Swedish) 22:19, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
