WHY DID THEY CONFESS?

must have public `confessions' by the opposition leaders."
Mrachkovsky asked that he be allowed to have an audience with Ivan Smirnov, his intimate colleague. Sloutski had Smirnov brought from his cell, and the meeting of the two men took place in his office. Let Sloutski describe it:
" It was a painfully disturbing scene. The two heroes of the revolution fell on each others' necks. They cried. Mrachkovsky said to Smirnov :,` Ivan Nikitich, let us give them what they want. It has to be done.' Smirnov disagreed, and answered: ` I have nothing to confess to. I never fought against the Soviet power. I never fought against the party. I was never a terrorist. And I never tried to murder anyone.' "
Mrachkovsky attempted to persuade Smirnov, but the latter would not yield. All the while the two men kept embracing each other and weeping. Finally Smirnov was led away.
" Mrachkovsky once more became recalcitrant and irritable," said Sloutski. " He began to curse Stalin again as a traitor. But by the end of the fourth day he signed the whole confession made by him at the public trial.
" I went home. For a whole week I was unfit for any work. I was unfit to live."
It remains to be added here that after Mrachkovsky had turned in his confession to the Ogpu, it broke the resistance of Ivan Smirnov who followed in the footsteps of his comrade. Yet Smirnov in the first public trial did make several attempts to repudiate his confession. He was cut short each time by the prosecutor.
