Unknown Chinese ambassador

Post by zhangyawei » 27 Jun 2014 04:25

Here is a photo from NAC. People from left were Japanese Ambassador Hiroshi Oshima, Ambassador of the Chinese government in Berlin Wang Ten Yin, the Reich Minister Otto Meissner. This photo was taken in Oct, 1944.
I wonder who was Wang The Yin. Which puppet regime he comes from?

Based on the general lack of on-line search results for "Wang Ten Yin," "Yin Wang Ten," and other variations on the order of the gentleman's names, I'm wondering if the transliteration of his name into the Roman alphabet is incorrect or non-standard in some manner.

There are 3 Chinese ambassadors who came from puppet states. Li Shengwu and Li Fang from Nanjing Nationalist Government and Lv Yiwen from Manchukuo. But none of their names familiar to Wang Ten Yin. So I assume that this guy may be a envoy or a lower diplomatic officer.

Probably Manchukuo consul to Germany from July 1942 on Wang Teh-Yin, son of a Wang Itang, c.f. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_der_ ... eutschland

Yes. Probably. But I didn't find any Chinese document to prove it. Maybe I need your help.

I personally knew Teh Yin Wang, born on 15/9/1914 in Peking and died in Madrid on 11/12/1997, he was consul in the Chinese Embassy in Berlin (Manchukuo) in 1942 and took office in March. He carried out important humanitarian work with the colony of Chinese citizens living in Berlin until his departure in April 1945 for Madrid. His brother Ming Yao Wang was stationed at the Chinese embassy in Madrid (Spain), in 1941, under the Franco regime.
Dr. Wang, as a political refugee, lived in Madrid until his death, thanks to the fact that he met other diplomats in Berlin who helped him to settle in Madrid. He was an important promoter of the first Chinese restaurants in Madrid from 1955 onwards.
