How Hans Scholl received Probst’s leaflet (2nd interrogation)

Question: How did you come to have a copy of the letter that was found on your person – a letter that had already been ripped up? It began with the words “Stalingrad! 200,000 German brothers were sacrificed!”

Answer: When I left my apartment around 10:30 this morning, I found a letter in my mailbox. The envelope was white and it had been addressed by hand: Mr. Hans Scholl, Munich, Franz-Josef Str. 13, Garden House. I briefly skimmed the letter in the foyer of my apartment and then tore it up. I stuck the individual bits of paper in my coat pocket. … Continue reading

Hans Scholl – leaving for university

This morning, I got up at 8:30 am, subsequently ate breakfast, read,  and left my apartment around 10:30 am. I carried an empty suitcase with me. My sister carried my empty leather briefcase. My sister Sofie Scholl accompanied me from my apartment (Franz-Josef Str. 13) to the university.

Willi Graf at Scholls’ apartment

Last Friday, I visited him for the last time in his apartment. At this moment, I could not say whether his sister (who lives in the same apartment) was also present.

Incidentally, I am shocked that such a question could even be posed during this time of war. Continue reading

Hans and Sophie move to Franz Josef Strasse 13

I have rented a room from Mrs. Schmidt, for which I pay monthly rental of 120 Marks [$960.00]. For a [hot] bath, I must pay 1 Mark [$8.00]. I must reimburse [her] for all telephone charges. I eat almost all my meals in public restaurants, and am considered a “regular” in some of these. I generally pay around 1.50 Marks [$12.00] per meal. We usually cook our own breakfasts and suppers. I need around 2.50 Marks [$20.00] per day for living expenses.

Move to Franz-Joseph-Strasse

Currently, I have access to my landlady’s typewriter, Erika brand. But I type on this typewriter only rarely, and then only impersonal letters or addresses. The letters I mentioned previously – to Nägele, Borchers, and my mother – I wrote even the addresses by hand. I have been living in Schmidt’s house since around November 15, 1942 and her typewriter has been available for my use since then.
