Sophie Scholl to Ulm
Question: How often does your sister go home, and when was she last in Ulm?
Answer: Irregularly, but usually every four weeks. Last time – a week ago – my sister stayed in Ulm for a full week, because my mother was very ill. She left Munich on Friday, February 5, 1943 with the early train around 7 or 8 am. …
Question: Why wasn’t your sister taking laundry with her this time [February 18, 1943]?
Answer: Because she [Note 1] and my sister Elisabeth Scholl, who was here in Munich for eight days, took all the dirty laundry to Ulm on February 5, 1943, but [she] did not bring all of it back.
Note 1: Typo in original document – capitalized “Sie” (formal you, instead of she).
Actual date was February 6, not February 5.
