Accusations of spying for Russia (Alexander Schmorell)

The assumption that I maintain contact with Russian persons or agencies for the purpose of passing along information is unfounded. I must certainly defend myself against such an accusation, because there is no basis for it.

The photograph of a Russian pilot and the address of a Russian POW that were found during the search have no meaning in this context, because I found the photographs on the occasion of my service on the Eastern Front. I did not know the pilot who had crashed.

I met the Russian POW named Andrejeff at Field Hospital Plankenhorn. I talked with him often and as a precaution had his address written down so we could look one another up after the war. We have not corresponded.

Date is estimate, based on correspondence from the friends on the Russian front. Could have been earlier or later that Alexander Schmorell met the above-mentioned Russians.-Ed.
