Excerpt from Alex’s February 25th interrogation

II A / Sond. [Special Commission]

Munich, February 26, 1943

Excerpt from the interrogation of Alexander Schmorell

On February 25, 1943, Schmorell made the following statement [Note 1]:

If I am asked what circle of persons had knowledge about the Scholl siblings’ mode of operation, I would be able to name Professor Huber, whom I met in the University of Munich. About 4 weeks ago, Prof. Huber paid a visit to the Scholl siblings in their apartment. At that time, we (Hans Scholl and I) initiated Prof. Huber into our plans. We believed him to be a man who was opposed to National Socialism. We told Prof. Huber that we were the producers of the leaflets of the “White Rose” and “Call to All Germans” and that we also distributed these leaflets. Prof. Huber warned us about the dangers of our mode of operation. However, he let us know that he would not denounce us. I assume that Prof. Huber has not denounced us to this date. As far as I know, Prof. Huber lives outside of Munich. [Note 2]

Note 1: The handwritten notes in the margin are illegible.

Note 2: The last sentence (“Prof. Huber lives outside of Munich”) was not in the February 25th interrogation transcript. Click here to open the transcript of Schmorell’s initial interrogation in a new window to compare side by side. The quoted passage is about halfway down the page.
