Transcript 14 SOCIALIST CALL NEW YORK The Soviet Trial and Labor Unity By Friedrich Adler Secretary, Labor and Socialist International The following article is composed of excerpts from The 'Witchcraft Trial in Moscow,* a lengthy analysis of the recent Soviet trials. I confess to the "liberalistic prejudice" that the witchcraft trials which took place during practically three centuries belonged to the most terrible aberrations in the history of mankind. During this era thousands of confessions were solemnly made before the courts, in which the defendant affirmed that he had met the devil in person, that he had concluded a pact with him and that on the basis of this pact he had practised all kinds of sorcery. Thousands suffered death by fire as a result of their confessions. . . .

Everything is proved simply by voluntary confessions and self accusations. . . . They work only with guaranteed genuine sincere confessions which, by a wonderful predestined harmony, always correspond exactly to the latest guiding lines of the Politbureau of the Communist Party." In 1931 I had to make a thorough study of one of these trials. ... At this trial an alleged visit by our Comrade Abramovitch to Russia was the central feature of the "proofs." The defendants made full "confessions" with regard to the details of their meetings and conversations with Abramovitch in Russia in the summer of 1928, but for me it is absolutely certain that all these statements were * Pioneer Publishers, New York. 39
