"Seven Years in Tibet" is a
adventurestory written by Austrian mountaineerand onetime SS Nazi Heinrich Harrerbased on his real life experiences in Tibetbetween 1944 and 1951 during the Second World Warand the interim period before the Chinese People's Liberation Armymoved into Tibet in 1950.
Seven Years in Tibet tells the story of how Austrians
Heinrich Harrerand Peter Aufschnaiterwere imprisoned by the British while mountaineeringin the north of Indiaat the beginning of World War IIin 1939. They eventually escaped across the border into Tibet in 1944 and crossed the treacherous high plateau. Shortly after arriving in Tibet, they were ordered to return to India. They were able to disguise themselves, and made their way to Lhasa, where they were warmly received. Harrer was introduced to the Dalai Lama, who was still a boy, and became a tutorand then close friend to the young spiritual leader. Harrer and Aufschnaiter remained in the region until the People's Liberation Armyentered it in 1950.
Two films have been made of the book. The first film was a 1956, 76-minute documentary directed by
Hans Nieter. The documentary includes film taken by Harrer during his stay in Tibet, and Harrer himself reconstructed various scenes from his adventures. The second, "Seven Years in Tibet", released in 1997, was directed by Jean-Jacques Annaudand starred Brad Pittand David Thewlis.
