The letters Albert Schweitzer and Hélène Bresslau exchanged were in calmer circumstances, but were no less transformative for Albert at least. We can only guess what would have become of the Dutch woman Hillesum and the Dutch teenager Frank had they not been killed in Nazi concentration camps. We can see what became of the work of Albert Schweitzer and Hélène Bresslau, foreshadowed with increasing clarity in the letters they exchanged prior to marriage. Schweitzer reached out to Bresslau and in so doing was able to see more clearly the path that his life would take, though neither of them could have foreseen that she would not be able to tolerate the difficult climate of Lambaréné, likened to me by a visitor as living in a steam room.

He is relieved that he made this choice, this momentous decision to change the course of his life. The resolution to act in this manner was complicated for Schweitzer of course. For one, it was simple with the pure motive that he didn’t doubt, he had clear and powerful anguish that needed to be dealt with, and it seemed that this abstract idea of helping others in dire need would do the trick. But he had no more than this vague idea of a calling. His family and others are there as he reflects, but as we shall find out, they are opposed to the trip and wonder about his emotional state, while many of his colleagues in his professions think his change of direction in life toward service in Africa is ill advised.

6 Charles Joy says of Goethe in his introduction to Schweitzer’s lectures on him that “[m]an’s noblest experience is that of awe, and if the phenomena as such are awe-inspiring, let him be content. ”7 Goethe was puzzled about discussions of ethics, thinking them dry, pedantic, and removed from life’s concerns. 8 Schweitzer returned to think about Goethe at different stages of his life. ”9 One becomes noble through action, a manner of ethical purification. This path is abetted by the presence of woman, in Goethe’s life and in his literature.
