THE OGPU

Stalin's bond with the masses was also kept fresh by a veritable army of Ogpu spies and stool-pigeons, specializing in the arrest of ordinary citizens for chance remarks against the regime. This type of police rule, perfected in Russia, has been adopted by Nazi Germany also. Hitler, in his speech to the Reichstag, on September 1, 1939, told his party lieutenants that during the war he would hold them responsible for the mood of the people in every province, in every street, in every house in Germany. The difference is that Stalin by 1937 had lost confidence even in his army of spies. As we have seen, he established an organization of spies to spy on spies. And he even at one point decided, according to a story told to all high officials, that he did not trust anybody and became his own Chekist. Growing suspicious of the actions of one of his clerks, he began to shadow him. He observed that this person was carrying on some strange operations inside the walls of his library. According to the story which we received, it was found that this clerk was connected with a number of officers of the Kremlin Guard leagued to assassinate not only Stalin, but the entire Political Bureau.
A high official of the Ogpu, in relating this to me, remarked how embarrassing it was to his organization to have been ignorant of the plot. The word went about that the "best Chekist is Stalin himself."
This alleged plot was the pretext for a wave of arrests not only within the Kremlin but throughout the country. But this real attempt on Stalin's life was, of course, never mentioned in any of the "confessions" which figured so dramatically in the Moscow show trials. Hundreds of fantastic tales were told there of plots to assassinate Stalin, but this real attempt which Stalin himself discovered has never been publicly mentioned.
