During the farewell party in question in June [sic] 1942 at Eickemayr’s [sic] studio, Leopold Str. 38, when Prof. Huber was also present, Hans Scholl and I told Prof. Huber nothing regarding the fact that we were the publishers and distributors of the “White Rose”. Continue reading
In addition, I participated in an event of the extended circle around Scholl. This was shortly before the [male] students went to the front. The meeting was planned as a so-called farewell party. It took place in Eickemeyer’s [Note 1] studio around the middle of July 1942. I believe Miss Lafrenz invited me to this party. Continue reading
Question: What can you say about the farewell party that Hans Scholl held in your studio in the summer of 1942?
Answer: As I already stated yesterday, at that time Scholl (and sometimes his buddies [Note 1] came to my studio to talk about my work and about cultural things. I can also recall that once or twice he brought along women – his sister Sophie Scholl and I believe a student named Lafrenz. Continue reading
After careful consideration, I now recall that I did stay at the farewell party at Eickemeyer’s studio to the very end.
Remonstrance Continue reading
Question: You yourself introduced a person to the Scholl circle, and to date, you have not named this person. Who was this person and what was the reason that you introduced this person to Scholl? Continue reading
Regarding the relationship between Lafrenz and Hans Scholl, I know that Lafrenz slowly became estranged from Hans Scholl during the summer of 1942. She then grew closer to me. Continue reading
I learned about the “White Rose” leaflet for the first time through the poet Dr. Schwarz, who lives in Solln. He received this anonymously through the mail and turned it over to the Secret State Police [Gestapo] when he received it. I do not recall any specifics regarding the content of the leaflet. I believe this has to do with the first leaflet, in case he received the second one as well. Continue reading
I believe it was in the first half of July 1942 that I learned from my friend Lafrenz that a 4th or rather an additional edition of the “White Rose” had appeared. Continue reading

The first time I had contact with the Scholl circle was in Schmorell’s villa. Around the end of June 1942, Lafrenz invited me there for a community reading of the book The Satin Slipper. Continue reading
It is also quite possible that I am partially confusing the meetings at Schmorell’s villa with the farewell party at Eickemeyer’s studio in terms of the political discussions there. I particularly can no longer say for certain whether questions or statements about passive resistance were made at the Schmorell meeting or at Eickemeyer’s. I can no longer recall details of the political debates. In any case, political discussions as I described during my first interrogation were held. Continue reading
At the meeting at my parents’ house in early summer 1942, a Dr. Heinrich Ellermann (not Petermann) participated in addition to Prof. Huber, the Scholl siblings, Miss Lafrenz, and Miss Schüttekopf [sic]. Continue reading
When I am asked whether and at which additional meetings I was present within the Scholl circle, I just remembered that before the meeting at the Schmorell’s villa, I met Lafrenz and Scholl one evening at Prof. Dr. Mertens’ [house]. Therefore I must also correct my previous statement in which I said that I met Lafrenz and Scholl for the first time at Schmorell’s villa. Continue reading
Miss Lafrenz introduced me to the Scholl circle. I met her around May 1942 in one of Professor Huber’s lectures [Note 1] at the University of Munich. Continue reading
With regards to the literary letters that I wrote, this is about a newsletter entitled Windlicht [Storm Lantern]. These letters were sent to a former circle of friends from Ulm, a circle that has been torn apart by the war. It was a means of building an intellectual bridge. Continue reading
