Following his atomic model came rapid developments from other young scientists. For  this new generation of physicists, Bohr would serve as a mentor. He was the founder  and head of the Copenhagen institute, which would soon become the international  center for modern physics. Young minds came to Copenhagen for cultivation;  established geniuses came to lecture and to take part in colloquia that often provided  the backdrop for conversations that changed the course of history. Those who visited  Copenhagen included Pauli, Heisenberg, and Schrödinger, all of whom made  discoveries that shattered conventional physics and shocked even those who had tried  to keep up with its rapidly developing pace. Many of these young scientists came to  Bohr for guidance, evaluation, and criticism. Bohr served not only as an individual  mentor, but a symbolic leader of the physics community at large. Bohr lived in Denmark, and it was not long before Nazi Germany influenced his life.
