Alexander Schmorell re February 18 plan

After the leaflets were mailed, there were still some leaflets left over. It is possible there were 1,500 – 1,800 leaflets. To be rid of these, Scholl and I agreed to set out the rest of the leaflets at the university in front of the doors to the lecture halls shortly before lectures ended. This idea came from either Scholl or me. In any case, we were temporarily in agreement about this plan. Neither Sofie Scholl nor Graf was present during this discussion. I cannot say whether Hans Scholl possibly told Willi Graf about our plan later.


Date and time are estimate. Assume after 2/15/1943 late-night mailing of leaflets. But could have been after final effort on February 16 as well. Critical to date/time: Only Hans Scholl and Alexander Schmorell were present. Eliminates other scenarios.-Ed.
