VI
WHY DID THEY CONFESS?

LENIN, the founder of the Soviet Government, warned his followers against applying the death penalty to members of the ruling Bolshevik Party. He invoked the fatal example of the French Revolution, which had devoured its own children, the Jacobins. For fifteen years, the Soviet power maintained inviolate this exhortation of Lenin. Bolshevik heretics were subject to expulsion from the party, to imprisonment, to exile, to loss of job or livelihood. But the unwritten law was that no party member could be put to death for political offences.
In the spring of 1931, at a special meeting of the Supreme Political Bureau, Stalin came out in favour of capital punishment for Bolshevik party members. The meeting had been called to consider the case of a new opposition group formed by one of the leaders of the Moscow party machine, Riutin.
By this time the consequences of Stalin's drive to collectivize the peasants had begun to assume the aspects of a national catastrophe. Hunger was stalking the most productive areas of the land. There were peasant uprisings. There was disaffection in the army. Economic disaster stared the nation in the face. Stalin's party machine was beginning to crack. More and more, new Bolshevik opposition groups raised their heads and voices, reflecting the unrest. They clamoured for a change of policy and of leadership in the Kremlin.
