II A-So. Schm [Schmauβ] – Munich, February 18, 1943
As he was released from custody, Count Wolff Metternich, born October 19, 1916 in Eupen, now residing in Munich at Maximiliansplatz 18, made the following statement:
“I can only keep repeating that I do not personally know the student who called out to me and said that he could not come that evening. I most certainly was standing in close proximity to him when this shout emanated from him. But since I was standing well at the front, I could not see if this shout was possibly meant for someone standing behind me, or rather if someone behind me reacted to it. If this were the case, of course I would disclose the name of the student [to whom the shout was directed] if I knew it, or if I could offer any additional explanation regarding the meaning of the shout.
“I am a member of the National Socialist Party.”
