THE OGPU

letter Mandelstamm handed me for you just as I was leaving the Narkomindel."
Volodya came to my apartment as soon as it was light and told me what had happened.
" What was in the letter?" I asked fearfully.
" Oh, the contents were harmless enough. Something about a new job and some evening courses he was taking at the University. Nothing else, I swear." "Volodya," I said, "go directly to Shapiro and tell him what you've told me."
He did as I suggested.
" Comrade Shapiro," he began apologetically, "I made a mistake yesterday. I did receive a letter from Mandelstamm, but I had forgotten all about it."
Instead of answering, Shapiro opened the drawer of his desk and confronted Volodya with a photostatic copy of Mandelstamm's letter.
" I'm sorry," stammered Volodya. " I forgot all about it yesterday."
" You lied about it yesterday," Shapiro replied. "You may go now."
On May 25, 1937, Volodya Fisher was arrested by the Ogpu. I never heard of him again. He was destroyed because of the two unspeakable crimes with which he was linked : he had received a letter from his former wife's husband, and his brother had displayed half of Radek's face on the wall of a workers' clubhouse in Bogorodsk.
There were thousands and thousands of such cases in Soviet Russia during the great purge.
In the chambers of the Ogpu the very word guilt lost all meaning. The reason for a man's arrest no longer bore any relation to the charges entered against him.
There is no better example of this than the case of Yagoda himself. Among the many fantastic charges
