The Haecker reading

Hans Scholl invited the same circle [Note 1] to a reading by Theodor Haecker. The following persons were there in addition: Traute Lafrenz, Karin [sic] Schüddekopf, Mrs. Dohrn, and two or three other [male] students from Scholl’s [Student] Company; I do not know their names.

I can also recall that Miss Schüddekopf brought a French teacher from the University of Munich to this reading. One of Geyer’s work colleagues – a Mr. Bäuerle or Mr. Feuerle – also took part. …

During the first meeting, they primarily talked about politics. The second time [Haecker’s reading], they did not.


Note 1: That group included (according to Gisela Schertling) “Hans Scholl, Sophie Scholl, Willi Graf, Furtwängler, Probst, Geyer, Furtmeier, and probably Eickemeyer. I must correct my statement. Furtmeier was not present. That was Eickemeyer. There was another [male] student present whom Furtwängler introduced. I cannot recall that student’s name at the moment, but it began with Sch.”
