The second time that Rousset took part was also limited to literary matters. If I recall correctly, it took place around mid-January 1943. The Scholl siblings were present that evening. Politics was not discussed that evening. Continue reading
He carried my luggage to the train station. I was actually surprised that he was so attentive to me, because after all, I had only known him for a few days. … Continue reading
After careful consideration, I now recall that I did stay at the farewell party at Eickemeyer’s studio to the very end.

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
