Transcript 19 LA REVOLUTION PROLETARIENNE What Have You Made of the October Revolution? By Marcel Martinet I At a time when all thoughts turn to the heroic struggle of the Spanish proletariat, the world is stupefied to learn of the crude setting, the incredible progress and conclusion of what has been called the Moscow "trial." The affair was finished in a few days. In reality, it has hardly begun, and its traces will not be wiped out for a long time. . . . Confronted with the burning of the Reichstag and the Leipzig trial and with the massacre of Hitler's oldest associates of the night of June 30, 1934, every revolutionist in the world was overwhelmed with disgust.

The most outstanding among the accused, Zinoviev and Kamenev, had already been "judged" and condemned, at the scandalous trial which followed the murder of Kirov in December, 1934. Since then they had been deprived of every chance for political action. Nevertheless, it was "crimes" for which they had been already condemned that they had to answer anew. The death sentences which the accused themselves demanded, with a strange unanimity, were automatically rendered. The executions followed without delay. But the whole remained shrouded in a peculiar mystery. That is all that is known. On the day after the Kirov trial, Romain Rolland, making a comparison with the guillotined of '93, admired the spiritual gran- 53
