The Schmorell verdict has been executed. Funeral to take place on July 14, 1943 at 6:15 p.m. at the Perlacher Forst [Forest] Cemetery. Costs are approximately RM 100 [$800]. It is absolutely necessary to first appear at the Office of Interment.

Note: Since Alexander Schmorell was executed late afternoon on July 13, and this letter was written “on” July 13, 1943, it is likely that Hugo and Elisabeth Schmorell did not receive it until after the burial had already taken place. Especially when compared to later statements that they were not told where their son was buried.-Ed.
