THE OGPU

They will take you, as they took the others. We belong to the generation which must perish. Stalin has said that the entire pre-revolutionary and war generation must be destroyed as a millstone around the neck of the revolution.

When his work in the villages was completed, he returned to the Ogpu. In his party dossier it was recorded that he had done "brilliant work" in the villages. He began to rise rapidly and was finally sent by the Ogpu as Soviet consul to Copenhagen. All consular officials of the Soviet Government belong to the Ogpu. This was Volodya's first trip beyond Russia. He found in Copenhagen an entirely different atmosphere from any in which he had ever breathed. In the countless shop windows of the city he saw articles of clothing for sale at what seemed to him laughably low prices.
