STALIN'S HAND IN SPAIN

At the same time it marked the end of the first stage of Stalin's intervention in the civil war. The business of Stalinizing Spain now began in grim earnest. The Ogpu was in charge. The Comintern was relegated to the rear. On February 4, 1937, General Kleber was removed from the command of the International Brigade. It was announced that this Comintern General was to be transferred to Malaga to organize the Loyalist defence. He was never heard of again.
Some weeks later, while in Moscow, I learned that Kleber's disappearance was connected with the purge in the Red Army, and the numerous arrests of staff officers. Many of his close comrades were being executed as conspirators by Stalin's firing-squads. I ran into Kleber's brother, who had been recalled from abroad in April. Several days later he, too, was arrested by the Ogpu.
The vanishing of the general of the Comintern in the great purge simply meant that he was one of those who were no longer useful to Stalin and that he knew too much. Stalin decided that the Comintern had done its job in Spain. Berzin and Stashevsky now had a firm grip on the Government.
The vanishing of General Kleber evoked no comment from those who had sung his praises all over the world. His manufactured glory died with him. General Lukacz was perhaps more favoured by the gods. He was a Hungarian Communist writer, his real name Mata Zalka. and he perished on the Spanish front.
The successful defence of Madrid with Soviet arms gave the Ogpu new opportunities to extend its powers. Thousands were arrested, including many foreign volunteers who had come to fight Franco. Any criticism of methods, any unflattering opinion of the Stalin dictatorship in Russia, any association with men
