THE OGPU

Stalin and the Ogpu decided to convince the world that the Moscow spectacle was on the level by arranging similar dramas in Spain, in Czechoslovakia, and in the United States.
The trial of the leaders of the Spanish Marxist Party, POUM, in Barcelona in October 1938, on charges of treason, espionage and attempting to murder the leaders of the Loyalist Government, was prepared by the Russian Ogpu. Moscow hoped to demonstrate through this POUM trial that in Spain all radicals who oppose Stalin are "TrotskyiteFascist plotters." But Barcelona is not Moscow. The Ogpu did its best under the circumstances, but despite all pressure the prisoners refused to say that they were spies in the service of General Franco.
I got wind of these proposed foreign trials one day in May 1937, while in the office of Sloutski. He received a telephone-call and after a long conversation with a person whose identity he did not reveal, he hung up and said:
" Yezhov and Stalin seem to think that I can arrest people in Prague as easily as in Moscow!"
" What do you mean?" I asked.
" Krivitsky, here's the way things stand," he said. "Stalin wants a trial of Trotskyist spies in Europe. It will create a big effect if we can put it across. The Prague police are going to arrest Grylewicz. They are friendly, but we can't manage the Czechs as we do our own people. Here in Moscow all I have to do is open the doors of the Lubianka and pull in as many as I want. But in Prague there are still some of those Czech legionnaires who fought us in 1918, and they sabotage our work."
Anton Grylewicz, a former German Communist leader and member of the Prussian Diet, who later became a Trotskyist, took refuge in Czechoslovakia
