THE OGPU

had no relation to the charges lodged against him. Nobody expected them to have. Nobody demanded it. Truth became entirely irrelevant. When I say that the Soviet Government became a gigantic madhouse, I mean it literally. Americans laugh when I recount to them some of these preposterous things that happened-and I could fill a volume with them-but it was not a laughing matter to us. It is not funny when your lifelong friends and comrades are disappearing in the night and dying all around you. Please remember that I was an inmate of that gigantic madhouse....

The value of a "confession" obtained by the Ogpu is well illustrated by the case of an Austrian Socialist who, outlawed in his own country, by the Dolfuss regime, had found asylum in the Land of the Soviets. He was arrested in Leningrad in 1935. The head of the Leningrad Ogpu, Zakovsky, got him to confess that he had been a member of the Vienna police force, and on that ground he was imprisoned as an Austrian spy. Through some devious means the prisoner managed to send a letter to Kalinin, the figurehead Pt esident of the Soviet Union. The case was turned over to Sloutski, who 'phoned me about it one morning.
" Walter, there's an Austrian Schutzbund matter here of which I can't make head or tail. You might be able to help me. It's right up your street."
" Send the dossier down tome, " I replied, "and I'll see what I can do."
The papers were soon handed to me by one of Sloutski's messengers. The first pages were Zakovsky's report to his superiors in Moscow stating how he had
obtained the confession. It was not unusual. The prisoner had offered little resistance; but it left me
