Eickemeyer hears about arrests
I suspected something of the sort at the beginning of March 1943. Mr. Grossmann, a Financial Controller [Note 1], had come from Munich to Cracow on business. He told me that there had been a student riot and that in connection with the riot, two siblings and a student from Innsbruck had been taken into custody.
Since I was aware that Hans Scholl and his sister Sophie studied in Munich and respectively that Christoph Probst studied medicine in Innsbruck, I automatically thought about this circle of people. Until the time of my trip to Munich, I did not undertake any measures to learn whether my suspicions were correct.
Note 1: Prokurist. While rarely the Chief Financial Officer, the Prokurist often serves as Secretary-Treasurer and fiduciary agent for a corporation.
