This system put the victim through a chain of questioners ranging from coarse novices to skilled craftsmen in the art of securing confessions.
A second element which entered into the production of the confessions was drawn from Stalin's secret cabinet. Here were gathered reports from his private espionage service covering the public and personal, the political and domestic doings of all the leading figures over a period of many years. This cabinet became an arsenal of compromising and blackmailing evidence, true and false, against all possible opponents of Stalin's rule.
