Hans Scholl re Leaflet 5

The first leaflet was entitled “Call to all Germans”, the second one was a call to students. The text originated with me. I alone wrote the text alone in my room at home. I wrote the first draft out by hand and subsequently destroyed it.


Note: Although Hans Scholl has been presented with evidence against him, he continues to try to deceive the Gestapo interrogators. For instance, since they still have not connected the four White Rose leaflets to the last two, here he goes along with “first” and “second” referring to what we know to be Leaflets No. 5 and No. 6.-Ed.
