Schertling and envelopes
The same is true of Gisela Schertling with regards to this matter. In February 1943, she procured around 10 envelopes for me. I did not tell Schertling that I would use these envelopes to mail seditious leaflets.
During my first interrogation, I already stated the reasons regarding my silence in this matter. I do not deny that I asked Schertling to procure envelopes for me. But I did not tell her for what purpose. She therefore could and must deduce that I wanted to use these envelopes for private purposes. Since I have known Schertling well for only a few weeks, I could not very well initiate her into my plans. Schertling is completely innocent.
