Hans Scholl on the suitcase/briefcase

Question: What did the suitcase contain that you were carrying today?

Answer: Nothing. The suitcase was empty.

Question: Why would you drag an empty suitcase around the university?

Answer: My sister Sophie Scholl wanted to catch an express train to Ulm that left from the main train station around 12:28 or 4:30 pm. She was going to visit our parents.


Note: Included here to show how the testimony changed over time. This clearly was not what happened.-Ed.
