Alexander Schmorell re Gisela and leaflets

I know that Gisela Schertling was in Hans Scholl’s apartment nearly every day. She participated in general conversations during which politics possibly was discussed. But we always avoided talking about our illegal activity in her presence, such as the publication of leaflets, graffiti, etc.

I also cannot recall that Schertling was ever present when I was working with Hans or Sophie Scholl on the production of leaflets or anything similar.

It is also not possible that Schertling became aware [of our illegal activity] through any manuscripts or notes of a seditious nature, because we always stored all our documents in a suitcase when our work was completed, took the suitcase to Eickemeyer’s studio, and burned them.
