Alexander Schmorell’s return to Munich

At 7 p.m., I took a passenger train out of Kochel, the Isar Valley Train to Munich. I had reached this decision, because I thought that after the police checkpoint things were getting too hot for me. [Note 1] I thought it would be easier to escape detection in Munich. …

I did not know that there was a warrant out for my arrest when I returned to Munich on February 24, 1943. I do not know where Christoph Probst or the Scholl siblings could be staying at present. [Note 2]


Note 1: “Der Boden wurde mir zu heiß.”

Note 2: As late as February 26, 1943, Alexander Schmorell appeared to be unaware that the Scholl siblings and Christoph Probst had been executed.
