Remington typewriter, February 1943

[Karl Pötzl]: As far as I know, Schmorell borrowed the typewriter for the last time about 8 days before he was arrested; he got it from my 16-year-old brother Hermann Pötzl. My younger brother told me that he came around the time I have stated and borrowed the typewriter without giving a reason for needing it.


Note 1: The date (“about 8 days before he was arrested”) ties to the activities of the White Rose group as detailed by Willi Graf’s diary and Gisela Schertling’s interrogations.
