Alexander Schmorell’s reaction to invasion of Russia
Sophie Scholl: I would like to add that Schmorell’s father is a German-Russian and that his mother was Russian (the latter is already deceased).
Before the outbreak of war against Soviet Russia, Schmorell was completely disinterested in politics. It was only later, that is after the beginning of hostilities against Russia that he began to take an interest in the course of the war, especially for militaristic events.
