Origin of White Rose name (indictment)

According to statements made by the accused Hans Scholl, the name “White Rose” was randomly selected and is attributable to a Spanish novel with this title. The accused Hans Scholl claims that initially there were no plans for the formation of an organization.


Note: Including all reasons (even flimsy ones like this) here. Date is placeholder, since it is unknown when Alexander Schmorell, the Scholls, and others remembered the letter from Fritz Rook to Lilo Ramdohr.-Ed.
