Alexander Schmorell re cash
By chance I had cash in the amount of RM 340.41 [$2,723.28] on me when I by chance [Note 1] learned of the arrests of two [male] students, because I did not return to my parents’ residence. It has long been my custom to carry all of my money with me.
Note 1: “Zufällig” (coincidentally or by chance) is repeated, once about the cash, and once about learning of Hans and Sophie’s arrest.
Date is estimate, based on date established for the burning of Alexander Schmorell’s uniform and paybook. He likely would have cashed out before burning that paybook.-Ed.
