Transcript made against their better knowledge. We proved this in our pamphlet for every phase, and in the most drastic manner of all by the photograph which shows Abramovitch with the delegates of the International Socialist Congress in Brussels at the very time when, according to the "confessions," he is supposed to have been in Russia. ... In this decisive "confession" by Holtzman (at the latest trial) the following passage occurred: "I arranged with Sedov to be in Copenhagen within two or three days, to put up at the Hotel Bristol and meet him there. I went to the hotel straight from the station and in the lounge met Sedov. About 10 A.M. we went to Trotsky. . . ." This Hotel Bristol, at which Holtzman met Trotsky's son in 1932, according to his confession, is actually given first place among the Copenhagen hotels in a pre-war edition of Baedeker's Denmark. But it is not to be found in the post-wrar guide books, as it Was pulled down in 1917 and has not been rebuilt. But this does not by any means exhaust the number of "confessions" by Holtzman which are demonstrably false. Sedov, Trotsky's son, whom Holtzman claims to have met in the lounge of the Hotel Bristol, and who is supposed to have taken him to Trotsky's apartment in Copenhagen, can prove convincingly that he was not in Copenhagen while Trotsky was staying there. Inded the truth is more drastic still: Sedov was never in Copenhagen in his life. . . . In our telegram we put forward the demand that "the accused shall be allowed to have defending counsel who are absolutely independent of the Government." The semi-official spokesmen in Moscow were indignant at this demand. Dimitrov regards it as "ridiculous and pitiable" for, as he says, "the defendants were granted the right to choose their defending counsel . . . but they renounced the right of choosing defending counsel." But as to the necessity of having foreign counsel for the defense at a trial in a dictatorship country as well as the reasons for rejecting defending counsel who are dependent upon the dictatorship government, we have a good witness who has said everything which it was necessary to say, namely, Georgi Dimitrov himself. He began his final speech at the Reichstag Fire Trial with the following statement, which we take from the Communist "International Press Correspondence," of December 29, 1933, (p. 1296): "I proposed the names of a number of lawyers whom I wanted to undertake my defense—Moro, Giefferi, Torres, Campinchi, Willard, Grig- orov, and four others, but all my proposals were rejected. I have no particular distrust in Teichert, but in the present situation in Germany I cannot possibly have the necessary confidence in his defense. I now address you with the request that you permit Willard to undertake my defense in conjunction with Teichert. If you are not prepared to agree to this, then I shall defend myself as best I can alone." 40
