Albert Schweitzer ein Leben für Afrika ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2010 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
1949 - Albert Schweitzer ist dank seiner Philosophie der "Ehrfurcht vor dem Leben", die er in seinem Urwald-Hospital im afrikanischen Lambarene verwirklicht, einer der am meisten bewunderten Menschen der Welt. Als er zusammen mit seiner Frau Helene die Vereinigten Staaten besucht um mit Konzerten und Vorträgen Spenden für Lambarene zu sammeln, schlägt ihnen anfangs eine Welle der Sympathie und grosszügigen Unterstützung entgegen. Doch im Amerika des Kalten Krieges und der McCarthy-Ära tauchen zunehmend Feindseligkeiten gegen Albert Schweitzer auf. Schweitzer ist mit Albert Einstein befreundet, der ihn bittet ihn in seinem Kampf gegen die Atomgefahr zu unterstützen. Für den US-Geheimdienst wäre dies ein Angriff auf die Politik der westlichen Welt. Deshalb soll eine gezielt lancierte Verleumdungskampagne das Lebenswerk von Albert Schweitzer in Misskredit bringen. Schweitzer muss umgehend nach Afrika zurückkehren: Seinem Krankenhaus droht urplötzlich die Schliessung durch die sogenannte Übergangsregierung dort und Sabotageakte gefährden die Versorgung der Kranken. Unterstützt von seinen Ärzten und getragen von der Liebe seiner Patienten nimmt Schweitzer den Kampf zur Rettung von Lambarene auf. Doch während der Druck auf seine Person wächst, wird Schweitzer zunehmend klar, dass er Einstein und alle anderen Wissenschaftler, die sich mit ihrem Engagement in Gefahr bringen, nicht im Stich lassen kann und will. In seinem Ringen um die Verantwortung für Lambarene einerseits und die Verpflichtung, die Welt vor einer der grössten Gefahren zu warnen andererseits, entscheidet sich Schweitzer schliesslich dafür, seine Stimme gegen die Atomgefahr und für die "Ehrfurcht vor dem Leben" zu erheben - und bringt somit Lambarene, sein Lebenswerk, endgültig in Gefahr. Doch im letzten Moment, als die Räumung des Krankenhauses bereits ihren Anfang nimmt, erfährt Schweitzer in seiner schwärzesten Stunde ungeahnten Beistand. (Quelle: CeDe)
