A rare SIGNATURE and INSCRIPTION by HANS ERTL just before he left Germany for Bolivia, where he spent the rest of his days. About HANS ERTL, Mountaineer, Nazi Cinematographer, Bolivian Refugee, Filmmaker (from Wikipedia): ******Hans Ertl (b. 1908 in Munich, Germany, d. 2000 in Chiquitania, Bolivia) was a German, and later Bolivian, mountaineer and cinematographer. In the 1930s he was the first man to ascend a number of notable mountain peaks. He was a cameraman and filmmaker during the Nazi era. He worked with Leni Riefenstahl on several of her Nazi propaganda films as well as on her Olympia film. During World War II he was among the preferred cameramen accompanying General Rommel which earned him a reputation as "Rommel's Photographer". In the mid 1950s he left Germany and resettled in Bolivia where he made two feature length documentaries of his Bolivian mountaineering expeditions. He embarked on a third filming expedition, but ceased after his tractor crashed through a wooden bridge with two thirds of the exposed footage on board. Frustrated he then decided to become a farmer and retired to a piece of semi-jungle land in Eastern Bolivia. Ertl was the father of the Bolivian Revolutionary Guerrilla Fighter MONIKA ERTL, he was also an acquaintance of KLAUS BARBIE and, reportedly a lover of LENI RIEFENSTAHL. He rarely returned to Germany where he felt cheated out of an important film award, but days before his death he asked his daughter in Bavaria to send him a bag of German soil. Ertl died in 2000 and he was buried on his farm which is now a museum.******. Codice inventario libreria 000850
