THE OGPU

Zakovsky's conduct was quite in the regular line of Ogpu duty. "Confessions" such as he had obtained were the principal meat upon which the Ogpu fed. My Austrian Socialist was no more and no less guilty than hundreds of thousands who lacked his good luck.
A conversation I had about this time with Kedrov, one of the most skilful of Ogpu investigators, is revealing. I met him in the Ogpu restaurant in Moscow, and we got to talking of General Primakov, one of his important cases. In 1934 General Primakov, a member of the high command of the Red Army, was arrested and turned over to Kedrov for grilling. Kedrov went to work on his distinguished victim with all the tricks at his command. He sighed as he told me about it.
" You know what happened?" he said. "Just as he was beginning to break down and we knew it would be only a matter of days or a week or two before we would have a full confession, he was suddenly released at the demand of Voroshilov !"
Again you see the irrelevance of the charges against the prisoner-even though he is on the point of "confessing all"-to the reasons for his imprisonment. In foreign countries people discuss whether the confessions obtained by the Ogpu are true or not. In the inner circles of the Ogpu the question hardly ever arose. That is not what the investigations were about.
General Primakov, snatched from the hands of the Ogpu on the verge of a "confession," served his country three years and on June 12, 1937, along with Marshal Tukhachevsky, was shot, and seven other ranking Generals were shot for new and different reasons.
Only once in my life, in August 1935, did I interrogate a political prisoner. He was Vladimir Dedushok, sentenced in 1932 to ten years in a concentration camp
