Graffiti operation (first indictment)
At the end of January 1943, the accused Scholl decided to also make propaganda [Note 1] by painting graffiti on buildings. This was at Schmorell’s suggestion. Schmorell made a template for him with the words “Down with Hitler” and a crossed-out swastika, and procured paint and paintbrush.
Note 1: Propaganda machen.
General note: This part of the indictment reflects the inaccuracies that arose from the hurried prosecution of Christoph Probst and the Scholls. Here the prosecutor lumped all three events into a single occurrence.-Ed.
