Alexander Schmorell re meeting with Kurt Huber (continued)

Since I returned from serving on the Eastern Front, I have met Prof. Huber twice in Scholl’s residence. At these meetings, we naturally spoke about military and political matters. We could determine that Prof. Huber does not agree with many current National Socialist issues.

Recognizing this led us to hint to Prof. Huber that back in the summer of 1942, we had published and distributed the treasonous “White Rose” leaflet. In this context, we were able to speak about the publication and distribution of treasonous leaflets in general terms, without telling Prof. Huber that at that very moment, we were beginning once again to occupy ourselves with the publication and distribution of such leaflets.

Although we did not expressly state this at the time, Prof. Huber could infer that when new treasonous leaflets should appear, Hans Scholl and I were the publishers and distributors thereof. In any case, Prof. Huber responded to our hints by pointing to the dangers associated with the publication and distribution of treasonous leaflets and warned us about it. Hans Scholl and I were certain that Prof. Huber would keep silent about the hints we had dropped. This meeting in Scholl’s residence took place about 4 weeks ago.
