STALIN'S HAND IN SPAIN

England do not know what happened to him. Nor have I been able to learn whether he was executed as a "spy" or lives now in a remote concentration camp.
There were countless such disappearances. Some men were kidnapped and taken to Soviet Russia. Others were assassinated in Spain. One of the most celebrated cases is that of Andres Nin, the leader of the revolutionary party of Marxist Unity (POUM). Nin had once been a Trotskyist, and years before one of the leaders of the Comintern. With a group of his associates, Nin vanished from the prison where they had been confined by the Ogpu. Their bodies were found only after a commission of British Members of Parliament had come to Spain to investigate their disappearance. Another outstanding case is that of young Smillie, son of the famous British Labour leader, Robert Smillie, murdered in an Ogpu prison in Spain. Still another is that of Mark Rein, son of the emigre Russian Socialist leader, Raphael Abramovitch (see Chapter IV).
The work of the Ogpu on Spanish soil created a rift in the anti-Fascist ranks of the Republic. It began to dawn upon Caballero and his associates that they had not known what they were doing when they joined hands with the Communist Party in the United Front. Premier Caballero had no stomach for the Soviet terror, which was decimating his own party and striking down his political allies. The autonomous government of Catalonia, which was resisting the Ogpu purge tooth and nail, had the blessings of Caballero. An internal crisis was ripening in Spain.
From the inside in Moscow, where the internal affairs of Spain were being decided, I watched the crisis develop and reach its climax.
In March 1937 I read a confidential report from General Berzin to the Commissar of War, Voroshilov.
