    A Jew is either a religion or a race.  A German is a nationality.  Your question is like saying "what country is a Christian from"? or "If you are Indian what religion do you follow"?  Einstein was of German nationality and of Jewish ancestry.

    Jews come from all over the world. Einstein was from Germany.

    Yes.  However, the Nazis decided he was a Jew first, and he was lucky enough to get out.

    Where are Jews from?  Well the originated in the Levant, in the old kingdoms of Israel and Judah.  They spread out from there.

    Einsten is both German and Jew. Jews are from multiple countries. Most Jews can trace their ancestry back to Israel but most of them migrated away from Israel for more than a thousand years ago.
