Transcript it is clear from the indictment that Paul Olberg is in prison in Moscow and, together with thirteen others whose names were mentioned in the course of the trial, "is still being investigated." But neither Paul Olberg nor the others to whom the accused refers were called as witnesses. The case of Olberg is especially grave because the Russian documents show that he made his confession against Trotsky as early as February while the others were heard in May and July. It was Olberg who set the thing going. There was enough time from February to July to check up on Olberg's deposition or to ask the Czechoslovakian authorities to do so. In the meantime Olberg's testimony has been shown to be an absolute swindle. In Prague, a number of unimpeachable witnesses have come forward who were acquainted with the history of Olberg's passport in all its details. There are also witnesses on Olberg's relations to Trotsky. These relations extended no further than an attempt by Olberg to induce the German writer Fritz Pfemfert to recommend him to Trotsky to be his secretary. Instead of doing this Pfempfert wrote Trotsky and warned him, successfully, not to permit this impossible, obviously suspicious, person to come anywhere near him. On the basis of the Russian documents one could compose thick Brown Books which detail for detail prove the complete baseness of the Moscow trials. The whole thing was framed in a frightfully crude way. May we be spared a repetition of it! September 12, 1936. 52
