In memory of “Freddie” – and of an EGS-excursion

Updated: May 16, 2021

“Alfred Burgener was an eccentric loner; he was a local but he was different. Well known for his hair (no one wore it long in those days), he used to go into the mountains with the sheep. Tourists would want to take his picture because of his unique look. In the beginning, he allowed people to take his picture but he didn’t really like it. He eventually gave up sheepherding, got married and opened a restaurant, which is still in operation. After his death, he was buried in the Saas-Fee cemetery, behind the chapel but his headstone is no longer there. How does the uniqueness of an individual like Freddie compare to EGS?” (by Susanna Armbruster)photo © Mirjam Candan
