Enclosure [Note 1]

Wilm. Fr. Mayr, Wiesbach, 16999. [Note 2]


Note 1: The indictment and verdict are not included here, as they are found in an earlier section of this translation.

The only things “different” in the copy attached here as enclosure were the handwritten notes on the first page of the indictment. The ages of Hans Scholl, Sophie Scholl, and Christoph Probst hand been noted in the margins (26, 22 [sic], and 24 respectively), with Hans Scholl’s “26” underlined twice for emphasis.

One cursory note refers to Hans Scholl’s military service: “Field hospital May 1940, October 1940.” The dates “March 39” and “Nov.” appear in the white space at the top of the page, as does a strongly penned “37” (no indication as to what that may mean, unless 1937, and referring to Hans Scholl’s earlier arrest that year). Also, the number 330,000, the number of soldiers killed in Stalingrad to which Professor Huber referred in Leaflet VI. Otherwise, the indictment is ‘clean’ and contains no additional notes.

Note 2: Form (stationery) information.
