Augsburg and Stuttgart
With regards to questions on this matter, I hereby expressly state that no other persons financed our operations. I believe Schmorell had already returned from Vienna when my sister Sophie Scholl – at my request – traveled to Augsburg and Stuttgart with around 1000 leaflets. We had prepared around 200 letters for Augsburg and around 800 letters for Stuttgart. My sister mailed these letters in those cities.
Note: Here, Hans Scholl covers for Hans and Susanne Hirzel. He stated that Sophie mailed the leaflets for Stuttgart, when the Hirzels had in fact done so.-Ed.
