Production of first leaflet (indictment)

He [Hans Scholl] purchased a duplicating machine, and with the assistance of his friend Alexander Schmorell – with whom he often discussed his political views – he acquired a typewriter.

He then wrote the first draft of the first leaflet of the “White Rose,” and allegedly working alone made approximately 100 copies [of the leaflet]. He then mailed these to addresses that he had chosen from the Munich telephone directory. He particularly targeted academicians, but also innkeepers, because he hoped that the latter would spread the news about the contents of the leaflets. …

He said that he partly raised the funds required for the production of the pamphlets himself, while some of the funds were given to him by his friend Schmorell.
