Gestapo Interrogation Transcripts: Gisela Schertling and Katharina Schüddekopf. Translated by Ruth Hanna Sachs.
English translation of ZC13267 Volume 15 for Gisela Schertling and Katharina Schüddekopf.
Fascinating juxtaposition of two women who could not have been more different. Gisela Schertling betrayed everyone in the circle of White Rose friends, including those who were on the fringe of the fringe. Her testimony, while disastrous for anyone she knew, provides extraordinary insight into the inner workings of the group.
Katharina, on the other hand, played the expected Nazi role of a young woman too naive and silly to bother her head with politics. In so doing, she covered well for friends never indicted.
