Hans Scholl political views from second interrogation

Question: What do you think about the content of this leaflet [Note 1]]?

Answer: I think about it as a soldier should.

Question: Do you not wish to make an additional statement?

Answer: I see the situation I assess the conduct of this protest internally the same as the conduct of the revolutionaries in 1918.

Question: There is reason to assume that you yourself are among the circle you just described. What do you have to say to that?

Answer: That assumption is unfounded.

Remonstrance: It is well-known that you have recently expressed the opinion to several different people that National Socialism must be replaced by a Christian Democracy. Is this true?

Answer: Whether or not this is my deeply-held view, I refuse to discuss it, because such discussions are not currently matters of interest.


Note 1: The Gestapo agent was referring to the sixth leaflet (Huber’s) that had been thrown over the balustrade and stacked outside lecture halls.
