WHY DID THEY CONFESS?

every secret report from our agents in Germany relating to the events of that night.
On December 1, 1934, Sergei Kirov was assassinated in Leningrad under mysterious circumstances. That very day Stalin promulgated an extraordinary decree which modified the penal law, making all cases of political assassination subject to trial within ten days by military tribunals, in secret, without counsel, to be followed by immediate execution, and denying to the President of the Soviet Union the power of pardon.
Hitler had shown the way, and the death of Kirov, the man who had stood in the way of Stalin's introducing the death penalty for Bolsheviks, opened the door for Stalin's great purge. The murder of Kirov was a turning-point in Stalin's career. It ushered in the era of public and secret trials of the Bolshevik Old Guard, the era of the confessions. There is hardly another instance in the history of the world where the assassination of one high functionary led to such a massacre as followed Kirov's death.
The mystery surrounding that assassination dated from the previous October when a young Communist by the name of Leonid Nikolaiev had been arrested in Leningrad by Kirov's guards on account of his suspicious behaviour. They found a revolver and a diary in the prisoner's brief-case. When he was brought before the deputy chief of the Leningrad Ogpu, Zaporozhets, the prisoner was set free. Zaporozhets made a special trip to Moscow to report this unusual procedure to Yagoda, then head of the Ogpu.
Two months later, on December I, the same Nikolaiev shot and killed Kirov. That night Stalin himself left for Leningrad to take personal charge of the investigation. He examined Nikolaiev and several of
