Hans Scholl re Gisela Schertling
I wanted to meet a girlfriend there. This is Miss Gisela Schertling, residing in Munich, Lindwurm Street 13/Fourth Floor c/o Wertheimer. She is also a friend of my sister Sofie Scholl. The two of them were together in Labor Service.
I have been involved in a romantic relationship with her for three weeks. In that time, I have met her nearly daily in different places. She comes to my apartment, completely impulsively, and I also visit her frequently in her apartment, where I once resided as well.
I have spent the night with Schertling three times. The last time was the night of February 16/17, 1943. Conversely, Schertling has frequently spent the night in my room and in the room of my sister.
Note: Hans Scholl’s “relationship” with Gisela Schertling had gone on since the beginning of January 1943, hence more than three weeks. Also, since the other Scholl-Schertling encounters are covered thoroughly in Gisela Schertling’s interrogations, Hans Scholl’s statement here will only be posted to the February 16 event, not to all three.-Ed.
