Hans Scholl re Remington typewriter (2nd interrogation)

Question: Does Alexander Schmorell own a typewriter or has he ever brought a typewriter to your apartment?

Answer: As far as I know, Schmorell does not own a typewriter. I also cannot think of a time when he would have brought a typewriter to my apartment.

Question: Recently, have you used a typewriter to type any reports or scientific essays, or written letters, or sent such things to soldiers?

Answer: No. I know of no such case.

Question: Your sister has made a different statement on this point. Which one of you you [Note 1] is lying?

Answer: As long as my sister herself does not say differently, I will not believe that she has made such a statement.

Question and Remonstrance: Does this mean that you believe that you are being accused of matters that have not been determined by your sister’s statements?

Answer: I cannot imagine that my sister would make a statement that does not correspond to the facts.


Note 1: The first “you” was Euch, plural of you, but informal. In Bavarian, Euch is used formally  as well. The writer corrected a dialect usage by changing it to Ihnen.

General note: Even though most of what Hans Scholl said above is not true, kept in this database for the big picture.-Ed.
