Regarding: Placement of the condemned in prisons
Encl: 1 document [Note 1]

In the criminal matter against Schmorell et al, I enclose a copy of the verdict of the 1st Senate of the People’s Court dated April 19, 1943. I herewith request to be advised to which prisons the following condemned shall be transferred, as they are currently being held in Stadelheim Prison, Munich:

1) Katharina Schüddekopf, No. 13 in the verdict
2) Gisela Schertling, No. 12 in the verdict
3) Traute Lafrenz, No. 14 in the verdict.

The condemned have no prior convictions. As petty offenders, they are to be regarded in accordance with the 5th revision of the Sentence Execution Ordinance (A.V. dated December 22, 1942).

I would be grateful if you would expedite this matter.

By order of
Signed Weyersberg.
