Schmauβ re Gestapo arrest of Scholls
Schmauβ: The University of Munich’s Chief Privy Councilor Hefner immediately advised the State Police Headquarters in Munich of this incident. They immediately occupied the university building (which had been sealed off in the meantime), together with a large number of municipal police officials. Several hundred leaflets with the inscriptions “Fellow Students!” or “German Students” were seized in the university building.
The Scholl siblings that Schmid pointed out as the perpetrators were apprehended and taken to State Police Headquarters in Munich. It was not possible to identify potential co-conspirators during an inspection in the university building.
