THE OGPU

dictatorships and then Stalin personally, that their survival depended upon its eternal vigilance, the Ogpu extended its sovereignty until it became a state within the state. One of its most cruel features is that, having started an "investigation" of this kind, for purposes having nothing to do with the detection of crime, it is compelled for the sake of the record to find a victim. That undoubtedly explains the fate of our Persian scholar.
In a country in which the supreme ruler regards every expression of dissenting opinion as a direct threat, it is but natural that the Secret Police very nearly becomes master of the master himself.
The story of the Ogpu goes back to December 1917, one month after the Bolshevik Revolution, when Lenin sent a memorandum to Djerzhinski, the veteran Polish revolutionist, containing the draft of a decree to combat "counter-revolution, speculation, and sabotage." This memorandum signalized the creation of an Extraordinary Commission with summary powers to combat the enemies of the Bolshevik Government. The Extraordinary Commission became known by the combination of its Russian initials as the Cheka. It developed into an instrument of terror and massexecution in the summer of 1918 following the attempt on Lenin's life and the assassination of the Bolshevik leader, Uritsky.
The first chief of the Cheka, Feliz Djerzhinski, was a ruthless yet utterly incorruptible revolutionist. He sent countless numbers to their death during the civil war, in the burning conviction that there was no other way to safeguard the Soviet regime against its "class enemies." Notwithstanding all the horrors associated with the name Cheka during the first years of the Bolshevik revolution, neither Djerzhinski himself nor the majority of his trusted assistants were motivated
