_Wheeler-Bennett,John.W.:Hindenburg, the wooden Titan_

Papen placed under arrest in his own house, faced for hours the 
prospect of immediate death until imperative instructions from Hitler 
placed his life out of danger. That strange quirk of loyalty in the 
Fuehrer's character forbade the death of a man who had placed him in power.

(??The usual version is that Papen was protected by Hindenburg, not by Hitler.)

Wheeler-Bennett,John.W.:Hindenburg, the wooden Titan.p.162.
