MY BREAK WITH STALIN

who had served as Soviet military attache in Rumania. He was a towering and jolly fellow whose sense of humour did not desert him even now.
He stopped in his tracks when he met me in the street.
" Am I seeing things, or is this Walter? What, they haven't arrested you yet? Never mind, don't feel hurt. They'll get round to you soon enough," and he roared with laughter.
We had quite a chat. He reeled off by dozens the names of Army officers under arrest-for at this time Marshal Tukhachevsky and his associates were already in the net. He had no doubt that his own turn would soon come.
I had come to the Soviet Union for a brief stay, but two months had elapsed without my being ordered back. It began to seem so unlikely that I tiould be allowed to leave the country at the crest of the Red Army purge that I finally wired my wife in Holland to get ready to return with our child to Moscow.
On May 22, the day when the fate of War Commissar Voroshilov himself was hanging in the balance and his fall momentarily expected, I was told that my train would leave at io p.m. I went to Mikhail Frinovsky, the right-hand man of Yezhov, and he confirmed the news that I was to leave that evening.
My associates interpreted this as a token of the implicit confidence which the Kremlin had in me. But when I reached Bielo-Ostrov, on the Finnish border, and caught sight of the familiar figure of the local commander rushing towards my compartment waving a telegram, my thought was: " He has orders for mv arrest!"
Many had been arrested in this way, just as they were ready to cross the border. "But why?" I asked myself. "Why was I not arrested before this?"
