In 1943, Heinrich Harrer, a youthful Austrian adventurer, mountaineer, and skier, escaped from a British internment camp in India and traveled through the rugged Himalayas seeking refuge from the war. He ended up in the Forbidden City of Lhasa in Tibet, with no money or permission to be in the country. However, his curious appearance and the traditional hospitality of Tibetan society soon worked in Harrer's favor, allowing him unprecedented acceptance among the upper class. His intelligence and his European ways also intrigued the curious young Dalai Lama, and Harrer became his tutor and trusted confidant. When the Chinese invaded Tibet in 1950, Harrer and the Dalai Lama fled the country together.
