Transcript Sher declares that he has destroyed all the documents placed in his care, but this statement is not in accordance with the facts. According to statements made by Rubin, who has made a complete confession of his participation in the counterrevolutionary Menshevist organisation, the matter is different. After stating on February 21st, 1931, that he was aware of the correspondence between the Menshevist centre abroad and the " All-Union Bureau," and of the contents of the documents containing directives, he continues : " With respect to the preservation of the documents, I can state the following : At the end of 1930 Stern and Sher asked me to take charge of some party documents which were required at times for the current party work. At that time I was working in the Marx-Engels Institute as head of the department for political economy. Sher, too, was employed there at that time (in the archives). After I had expressed my agreement, Sher brought me six documents, including three from the foreign centre (on intervention, on the coalition with bourgeois parties, and on the Kondratiev group), and three letters containing the theses and resolutions of the ' All-Union Bureau ' (theses on the victory of the Stalin line, resolution on the inner situation in the C.P.S.U., and the draft of a resolution on the re-naming of the R.S.D.L.P. as Labour Party). It was easy for me to keep the documents in my room, and here they were easily accessible. I kept them until 11th December. Oh this date I left the Institute for good, and I fetched the documents from their place of concealment, destroyed the Russian ones at my home and placed those from the foreign centre in an envelope, which I closed and gave to D. B. Ryazanov, telling him that here there were some documents of interest for the history of the Social Democratic Party, and I should like him to keep them in the Institute for a time. D. B. Ryazanov took charge of the envelope with the documents. After leaving the Institute on 14th December, I did not see Ryazanov again. The foreign documents were written on thin paper, and began : Dear Comrades." (Statement made on 21st February, 1931.) Sher makes the following statement on the preparation and circulation of the literature from the centre abroad : " The literature retained in Moscow was distributed and was organised by Finn-Yenotayevsky. I do not know, however, how this was organised. As a rule the literature was sent to Moscow as express goods. In some cases the packages were conveyed by Finn-Yenotayevsky person- 45
