Alexander Schmorell to Austria

Question: When did Schmorell travel to Salzburg, Linz, and Vienna to take care of the propaganda mailing? When did he return? Where did he spend the night?

Answer: Schmorell took the express train from Munich to Salzburg, Linz, and Vienna on January 26, 1943. This was a Tuesday. He left at 6 am.

… I do not know whether Schmorell spent the night [Note 1] in one of these cities. I assume that he did not, since he was not carrying very much money. He could not have spent the night someplace, even if he had wanted to.


Note 1: In the sense of with a person or in a hotel, not merely “staying overnight” in a place.
