“All Points Bulletin” for the White Rose

Since the circumstances imply that this case deals with traveling perpetrators who will likely appear in other southern German locations, I have made the plain clothes police [Note 1] in Munich, Stuttgart, Karlsruhe, Nuremberg, Augsburg, Regensburg, and Würzburg aware of the material contents of the observations to date and requested their cooperation in the war-time search efforts (train inspections).

I have transmitted the pertinent written request [for these services] to the State Police Headquarters in Vienna and the State Police Bureau in Frankfurt a.M. requesting [that these parties] take note of the information and take appropriate actions in their respective districts.


Note 1: Lit. Kriminalpolizei or “criminal investigation departments” of the regular city police force.

Note 2: Date of approximately February 2 – 4 assumed for notification of other police departments. Trenker’s memoranda or telexes to those departments apparently did not survive.
