Tibet in 1938-1939 by Isrun Engelhardt

Book Description

Laying dormant in the German Federal Archives in Koblenz are photographs from one of the most fascinating expeditions in recent history: the Ernst Schafer expedition to Tibet in 1938-39. This volume presents a selection of 150 largely unpublished photographs from that expedition. Revealing lives in Tibet as it existed before World War II, the photographs are documents of bygone lifestyles, buildings, and temples, and the self-confident people of Tibet at the cusp of devastating historical change. Schafer's photographs are rich sources of information casting new light on the recent history of Tibet. The essays illuminate the contexts of the photographs, examining the circumstances of the expedition and its controversial link to the Nazi German past.
