Alexander Schmorell re scattering operation

The night of January 27 / 28 (sic), 1943, Hans Scholl, Willi Graf, and I left Scholl’s residence and went to various neighborhoods so we could scatter copies of the “To All Germans” [Note 1] leaflet within the city. We had around 1,500 copies of that leaflet with us, which we divided evenly among ourselves. For example, I took my briefcase (I kept the leaflets in it) along Kaulbach Str., Tal Str., Kanal Str. and Amalien Str., and set out my leaflets along the way. Several times on Kaulbach Str., I entered the courtyards [of houses] to set out my leaflets. I did not enter the main post office building on Residenz Str.

As far as I know, Willy [sic] Graf was supposed to take Sendlingertorplatz and its surroundings, while Scholl was to head to the main train station to set out his leaflets there. We undertook this scattering operation between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m. [Note 2].
