Sophie and Gisela mail leaflets

I must also admit that once Sophie Scholl and I mailed those kinds of leaflets in a mailbox at the corner of Leopold and Franz Joseph Streets. It was a lot, maybe 50. Sophie Scholl was carrying the leaflets in a briefcase. The leaflets about half-filled the briefcase.

On that occasion, Sophie Scholl did not tell me that the envelopes contained leaflets. But I already knew it, because I had seen how they folded the leaflets and stuffed them in the envelopes.

I helped Sophie Scholl only in the sense that I held the lid to the mailbox open so that Sophie Scholl could put them in without any problems. Otherwise I did not assist in the distribution of the leaflets in any manner.

I also did not type any addresses that Scholl and Schmorell would have already provided.
