Gisela seeks atonement for treason

When the unfortunate events occurred and Hans Scholl was arrested, I finally came to my senses for the first time. I then tried to get out of this atmosphere. I decided I no longer wanted to study [at the university], because I did not want to be around [male] students any longer.

I felt morally guilty. I intended to atone for my offenses by working in an armaments factory.

I therefore told my father that I felt guilty, and that I could best atone for it by working in an armaments factory. He advised me to do so.
