The Albert Schweitzer - Helene Bresslau Letters, 1902-1912

Edited by Rhena Schweitzer Miller and Gustav Woytt

Cloth $29.95s    |    0-8156-2994-X    |   2003

A window into the shared lives of two of the world's best-known humanitarians.

"Just as these recently found letters enlightened Schweitzer's daughter about her parents' early relationship, they will interest readers curious about their vision of humanitarian work in Africa."
dash Book News, Inc.

This book provides the only personal portrait of Schweitzer, here as a young man on a quest to better the lot of humankind, and of the woman who helped to shape that pursuit. Schweitzer was twenty-six and Helene Bresslau twenty-two when they met. He was preparing for an academic life in theology and philosophy, while his skill as a musician supplemented his intellectual work. Helene stepped beyond the conventions of the day by entering the nursing field, by founding a welfare program for single mothers, and fearlessly stating her own opinions. While Schweitzer searched for his path, Bresslau provided the sounding board for many of his ideas.

Translated from the German by Antje Bultman Lemke.

Nancy Stewart, Assistant Editor.

6 x 9, 280 pages, 13 illustrations, notes, index
