Gisela’s perception of White Rose politics

I knew how he [Hans Scholl] and his acquaintances, whom I gradually got to know, thought.

Initially, such disgust arose in me, an immediate physical discomfort, whenever they would talk. It was so stupid that what they said often was completely opposite to what I felt was true.

But they were so smart, and they had such knowledge of history and worked with so many proofs and facts, that although I often knew they were not right and I knew I could not believe what they said, I also could not prove what I believed to them the same way they proved things to me.
