Willi Graf on Dr. Mertens
Question: Do you know a Professor Mertens? If so, what is your relationship to him etc.?
Answer: I know a professor by that name solely as the publisher of the “Munich Medical Weekly”. I have never had any contact with this man. I also do not know whether the Scholl siblings maintained contact with Dr. Mertens.
Editor’s note: Humorous that the Gestapo assumed it was Mr. Dr. Professor who was involved with White Rose literary soirees. In actuality, it was the good professor’s wife.
