MY BREAK WITH STALIN

"You know, you are responsible for Reiss," Spiegelglass remarked significantly. "You introduced him into the Communist Party and you sponsored his joining our organization."
He went on to tell me that he had information that Reiss intended to leave France the following morning, and that action must be taken that very night or it might be too late. At first he was cautious in throwing out hints that I might take a hand in the "liquidation" of Reiss. I pretended not to understand what he was driving at, and tried to divert the conversation to other channels.
Spiegelglass suggested that we should telephone a close friend of Reiss, then in Paris, a former Hungarian pastor who went in our secret service by the name of Mann, and ask him to join our conference. We reached Mann and he agreed to come over.
In the meantime, Spiegelglass became very explicit. His words left little doubt in my mind that my own fate depended upon my conduct that night. To his insistent suggestion that I should take a hand in organizing the "solution" of the Reiss case, so as to establish my own loyalty in the eyes of Yezhov and Stalin, I finally replied that I would have nothing to do with any such undertaking.
At that moment I realized that my lifelong service to the Soviet government was ended. I should be unable to meet the demands of Stalin's new era. I did not possess the faculties required by the Spiegelglasses and the Yezhovs. I could not pass the criminal test now put to those who wished to serve Stalin. I had taken an oath to serve the Soviet Union ; I had lived by that oath ; but to take an active hand in these wholesale murders was beyond my powers.
I asked Spiegelglass if he had the authority to take over my network, as the situation clearly demanded
