From the conversation that followed between Hans Scholl and me, I learned that he did not completely agree with Dohrn’s attitude. He thought he dedicated himself far too much to the Catholic Church. For Hans Scholl, [Dohrn] was too fanatically Catholic.

I took the letters that were designated for Stuttgart – between 600 – 700 pieces – to Stuttgart myself and mailed them there. I left on Wednesday, January 27, 1943 at 4:30 pm on an express train and arrived in Stuttgart’s main train station at 7:55 pm. Continue reading
Probst’s father-in-law Mr. Dohrn was not in Scholl’s apartment on Franz Joseph Strasse, but rather in Eickemeyer’s studio on Leopold Str. As I recall, I saw him there twice. I had the impression that the meeting had been arranged with Hans Scholl. Continue reading
I have already said that I saw Dohrn (Christoph Probst’s father-in-law) only in Eickemeyer’s studio. That was on three specific evenings. One was when Theodor Haecker read aloud, and twice at other meetings. Continue reading

The next day, I began mailing my letters in various mailboxes. This would have been around 100 – 200 such letters. In Vienna, I also mailed around 50 to 100 leaflets “Call to All Germans!” in letter format; these were destined for Frankfurt a.M. As best as I can recall, Scholl also paid for a portion of this trip to Vienna. I do not remember anything else about it. Continue reading
