A few days before Sloutski told me the story of the cashiers of the Bank of Spain, I had noticed in the Moscow press a list of high Ogpu officials who had received the Order of the Red Banner. Among them were several familiar names. It occurred to me to ask Sloutski what distinguished service had brought them this coveted decoration. He said that the honoured men had been the leaders of a special squad of about thirty trusted officers who had been sent to Odessa in December to work as longshoremen.
An enormous quantity of gold had arrived at that time frotn Spain. Stalin would entrust only the highest officials of his secret police with the job of unloading the treasure, fearing that word of it might get out. He made Yezhov personally pick the men for the task. The operation had been surrounded with such extraordinary secrecy that this was the first I myself had heard of it.

Across this cleared and empty space from dock to railway track, the highest Ogpu officials carried the boxes of gold on their backs. For days and days they carried this burden of gold, loading it on freight cars, which were then taken to Moscow under armed convoys.
