Gisela’s corrections re meeting with Dohrn

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

Meeting in studio with Harald Dohrn

Furtwängler was only in Scholl’s apartment (sic [Note 1]) on two occasions. On those occasions, Schmorell, Sophie Scholl, Geyer, Christoph Probst’s father-in-law [Harald Dohrn], and I were also present. I noticed from the conversations that this circle in general (with the possible exception of Furtwängler) was very negative towards the State. Continue reading

Alexander Schmorell: Meeting with Harald Dohrn

To the remonstrance that Christoph Probst’s father-in-law Mr. Dohrn was repeatedly at Hans Scholl’s [apartment] while I was there: I can say that I recall that I met Mr. Dohrn twice in Eickemeyer’s studio. Christoph Probst likely introduced him there. During the meeting, I could tell that Mr. Dohrn had the same literary interests as Hans Scholl. It is possible that political matters were discussed on this occasion. Continue reading

Alexander Schmorell – mailing leaflets in Vienna

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

Alexander Schmorell – Salzburg and Linz

So we would not have to use 12-Pfennig [$0.96] postage stamps for letters to the out-of-town addresses, we decided to distribute these leaflets (some simply folded, some placed in envelopes) by taking them to the city in question for mailing. For this reason, I took the fast train from Munich to Salzburg at the end of January 1943 (the Salzburg mailing took place on January 26, 1943), carrying several hundred letters. Continue reading

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. Continue reading

Willi Graf recruits Heinz Bollinger

Question: During the conversation between yourself, Scholl, and Dr. Huber at the latter’s residence at the beginning of January 1943, you volunteered to use your connections to the Rhineland to distribute the leaflets in question. It is therefore likely, if not completely certain, that your trip to Bonn, Freiburg i.Br., and Ulm served that primary purpose. I therefore ask you: Which persons from your circle of friends in the above-named places did you approach about the distribution of leaflets? Continue reading
