Willi Graf looks at fifth leaflet

Late one afternoon in the middle of January 1943 when I was visiting Scholl in his apartment, he gave me a typewritten draft of the leaflet entitled “To the Germans” to read in the presence of his sister Sophie. I read this draft without making any comments either for or against its contents. If I remember correctly, the 2nd part of this draft talked about the establishment of a so-called federalist State.

After skimming this draft, I championed the opinion that a future German State was unthinkable in that form because I am of the opinion (as I have already mentioned) that an authoritarian government is or would be most suited for us.
