Tilly Hahn in Munich

The telegram dated January 23, 1943 that was confiscated from me was from a Mrs. Hahn. She was in Munich and informed me that she was being put up at the Hotel “Wolf”, where she would be staying in case of an air raid.

That telegram has nothing to do with the relationship to the Scholl family.


Editor’s note: Most likely, TIlly Hahn was in Munich to bring the White Rose friends supplies or money. Not only did she give her own funds to the White Rose effort, but postwar Eugen Grimminger confirmed that she would travel to Munich – always with a good cover – to deliver money or supplies to the friends. Truly an unsung hero of the White Rose.
