THE OGPU

bv anything except fanatical zeal to serve as the sword of the Revolution. Feared by the people, the Secret Police were not then feared by those who worked loyally for the Soviet State.
As the Soviet State became progressively more totalitarian, as the Bolshevik Party itself became the victim of what it had created in 1917, the Secret Police gained greater and greater power, terror became an end in itself; and fearless revolutionists were slowly replaced by hardened, dissolute and demoralized executioners.
In 1923 the name of the Secret Police was changed from Clieka to Ogpu, from the Russian initials of "United Government Political Administration." The change in name was intended to get rid of unpleasant associations, but the new name soon inspired a far more dreadful terror.
The Ogpu remained in the same home the Cheka had occupied, a building called the Lubianka, which had housed an insurance company before the revolution. The original green structure facing the Lubianka Square was about five storeys high. But beginning in 1930 additions were made, including three new storeys of yellow brick, and a luxurious new elevenstorey building with a black marble base.
The main approach to the Lubianka is still through the old building, at the entrance to which there is a large bas-relief of Karl Marx. There are other entrances from the side-streets, and virtually all the buildings in the immediate neighbourhood belong to the Ogpu and house its people.
Standing on an elevation, the group of old and new Ogpu buildings on Lubianka Square are one of the most prominent and beautiful features of the city. Through the main entrance from the Square pass only the highest officials of the Ogpu. Ordinary citizens
