WHY DID THEY CONFESS?

known revolutionary figure was arrested by Stalin in May 1937, as a "Gestapo spy."
Bela Kun was lodged in the Butirky prison in Moscow, as there was no available space at the Lubianka headquarters of the Ogpu. He shared a cell with 140 other prisoners, among them such outstanding leaders as Muklevitch, the commander of the naval forces of the Soviet Union. Bela Kun, when taken out for examination, would be kept away from the cell for longer periods than any other prisoner. He was given the "standing" test for periods ranging from ten to twenty hours, until he collapsed. When brought back to the cell, his legs would be so swollen that he could not stand. After every examination, his condition grew worse. His face upon his return to the cell would be so black that the other inmates had difficulty in recognizing him. The keepers treated Bela Kun with special brutality.
The cell in itself was a torture chamber. It had two tiers of boards, one above the other, on which the prisoners lay or slept. The space was so overcrowded that the men could not stretch out; they all had to sleep on their sides with their legs doubled up, one body close to the other. Otherwise all the prisoners could not be accommodated. The starosta or prisoners' monitor of the cell had to give orders to the entire group on a tier to change positions whenever one of the men had to turn over or get up. There was no room in the cell for walking.
Bela Kun did not confess. Neither did Muklevitch. Nor did Knot-in, another of the inmates, formerly a member of the Central Committee of the Bolshevik Party, although the latter was made to stand for twenty hours at a time.
This form of torture was part of the first stage of the "conveyor" system of examination. In charge of
