Decision to “scatter” at the university
After I had finished mailing these leaflets and was convinced that my plan had been successful (I sent one to myself and was notified [of delivery]
before by at least Schmorell and Graf), I had the idea to distribute the remaining leaflets among the student body or rather at the university. When my sister returned to Munich on Sunday, February 12 14, 1943, I showed her the leaflets I had produced and determined that she was in agreement with their content.
General note: The dating of this decision is directly linked to Alex Schmorell’s burning of his uniform and paybook, which likely took place on February 11, 1943. More about this once Lilo Ramdohr’s information is uploaded. Additionally, the comment about showing the leaflet to Sophie Scholl on February 14 comes after Hans Scholl’s comment about making the decision to scatter the leaflets at the university.-Ed.
