THE OGPU

International and one time boss of the Leningrad Party and Soviet. Once he had been stout. Now, as he shuffled through the corridor clad in white-andblue pyjamas, he was haggard and wasted.

In the office of every prosecuting investigator the most important article of furniture is his couch. For the character of his work is such that it often keeps him going at consecutive stretches of twenty to forty hours. He is himself almost as much a captive as the prisoner. His duties know no limits. They may extend from grilling prisoners to shooting them.

Sometimes the men who go down into the cellars to carry out the death decrees of the collegium of the Ogpu are officers and sentries of the building.

The Ogpu executioners took their greatest toll during 1937 and 1938, when the great purge engulfed everything. Earlier, in 1934, Stalin loosed the Ogpu upon the rank-and-file of the Bolshevik Party.
