[Conversation between Richard Walther Darré and Franz von Papen]
10 June 1945
DARRÉ: Strangely enough Himmler had good connections in Asia. Personal relations, for instance with the brother of Emperor Hirohito.
Von PAPEN: Yes, he sat next to him on the grandstand during the Reichsparteitag.
DARRÉ: Yes, and if I remember correctly, he had a 3-hour private audience with Hitler away from all the officers. Furthermore he (Himmler) had peculiar connections with the Dalai Lama, very strange business; and with the Tartars in Mongolia, too.
Von PAPEN: He could become a Lama priest now, ha ha! Nobody would find him then.
