Regarding: Clemency petition for Katharina Schüddekopf,
born February 8, 1916 in Magdeburg.

Previous correspondence: Your request dated September 21, 1943
File no. 6 J 24/43-6 Clemency petition 37/43

Enclosures: – 3 – .

The clemency petition of Mrs. Katharina Schüddekopf dated September 16, 1943 for conditional early release of her daughter Katharina Schüddekopf cannot be approved. [Miss] Schüddekopf – born February 8, 1916 in Magdeburg – was sentenced to 1 year in prison in the highly treasonous matter of Hans Scholl et al. It also cannot be approved in view of the negative opinion expressed by the warden of the Women’s and Juvenile Prison in Rothenfeld and because of the fact that Schüddekopf must be seen as an opponent of the National Socialist State, despite the reasons stated in the petition.

Incidentally, the mitigating factors that speak in favor of Schüddekopf were already largely taken into account in the verdict of the People’s Court dated April 19, 1943.
