THE OGPU

and water-falls, it opened the great water-way on schedule. From the deck of the steamer Anokhin Stalin himself, with Yagoda at his side, viewed the great opening celebration.
When the canal was completed an amnesty decree liberated 12,484 of the half million "criminals" who had built the canal and shortened the sentences of 59,516 others. But the Ogpu soon discovered that the majority of those "liberated" had become so fond of working collectively on the canal that it shipped them to another great engineering project, the MoscowVolga Canal.
On April 30, I937, 1 saw an immense photograph of Firin, the Chief Ogpu canal builder, prominently displayed in the Red Square. Well, I thought to myself, there's one big man who hasn't been arrested! Two days later I ran into a colleague who had just been recalled from abroad. One of the first things he said, after recovering from the shock of finding me still at large was: "You know, Firin is finished."
I told him that was impossible, since Firin's photograph was still on display in the most important square in Moscow.
" I tell you Firin is finished," he said. " I was at the opening of the Moscow-Volga Canal to-day and he wasn't there."
Late that night I received a 'phone call from a friend working on Izvestia. He told me that his office had been notified to remove from its files all photographs and biographical references to Firin, the great canal-builder of the Ogpu.. . .

The Ogpu was not satisfied to limit its operations to Russia alone. Despite all the efforts of skilled propagandists, the world looked with scepticism upon the "confessions" of old Bolsheviks in the Moscow trials.
