(Association Internationale de l'oeuvre du docteur Albert Schweitzer de Lambaréné)
The aim of the AISL (Association International de l'oeuvre du Dr. Albert Schweitzer de Lambaréné) is to disseminate information about the life and the thought of Albert Schweitzer and to maintain his legacy.
In the house of Albert Schweitzer in Gunsbach we have a small Museum and an Archive. On a guided tour you will be introduced to the life of Albert Schweitzer.
We are convinced his ethics of "reverence for life" is still of great, and perhabs even increasing, relevance to the world today.
