Abstract:

In the summer of 1939, climber and Olympic ski champion Heinrich Harrer was in India when war was declared. He found himself a prisoner of the British and was interned at the POW camp at Dehra-Dun. With the Himalayas right in front of him the thought of escaping through the mountain passes was very attractive. With few possessions and little money, Harrar escaped in 1944 and succeeded in reaching Tibet only to discover that Tibetians did not welcome strangers. Eventually, after great hardship and some remarkable experiences, he reached the forbidden city of Lhasa where he became tutor and friend of the present Dalai Lama, who was then a child. Harrar left the country seven years later when the Red Chinese invasion forced the Dalai Lama to flee.
