THE OGPU

must obtain passes in the Ogpu's Bureau of Permits on the street called Kouznetski Most, facing the Commissariat of Foreign Affairs. Long lines of relatives, wives, and friends begging for permission to visit prisoners, to send letters or packages of food and clothing, always crowd the Bureau of Permits. From the character of these waiting lines one may read at a glance the Soviet policy of the period. In the first years of Bolshevik rule they were filled with the wives of officers and merchants. Later the relatives of arrested engineers, professors and technicians predominated. In 1937 I saw long queues composed of the next-of-kin of our own Soviet people, the wives and relatives of my friends, comrades and colleagues.
In the long dark corridors of the Lubianka guards are stationed at every twenty paces. Permits are verified at least three times before an outsider is permitted to enter any office of the Ogpu.
In what had been the courtyard of the old building, the Cheka erected a special prison for important political prisoners. Most of them are kept in solitary confinement, and the prison itself is now called the "Isolator." The cell windows are so obstructed, not only by iron bars but by a slatted iron blind, that they permit only a small ray of light to enter. The prisoner is cut off entirely from any view of the courtyard or the sky.
When an Ogpu investigating prosecutor wishes to cross-examine a prisoner in his office, he calls up the commandant of the prison, who sends the man under guard across the courtyard, up a narrow dark stairway, and into the office building. There is an elevator to take prisoners to the upper stories.
In the autumn of 1935 I saw one of the most notable
of the Lubianka prisoners, Lenin's close colleague and collaborator, the first President of the Communist
