Transcript 20 NEUE FRONT (GERMAN SOCIALIST WORKERS' PARTY) Confessions Which Accuse! Due to the haste with which the Moscow trials were prepared, there was a great deal in the stage-direction and execution which was unavoidably faulty. For obvious reasons concrete proofs and concrete questions were carefully evaded by both the loquacious accused and the prosecuting attorney. The few concrete details which did come to light revealed such inaccuracies, contraditions, and absurdities that they alone can serve as documentary witnesses against the Moscow trials. The most palpable contradictions appear when we examine the answers to the most elementary question: at what period of time did the so-called Trotskyist-Zinovievist terrorist center come into existence? Most of the accused asserted that the center had existed since the fall of 1932. Interestingly enough, however, the testimony showed clearly that both Zinoviev and Kamenev were sent into exile in the fall of 1932 and had to leave Moscow. Nonetheless, as the real leaders, could they not have participated in the organization of the center? But two of the accused also add that before the departure of Zinoviev and Kamenev, it was decided, at a meeting at which they were both present together with a group of the accused, to suspend the activities of the center. This pause lasted from the fall of 1932 to the fall of 1934! What becomes, then, on closer examination, of the continuous "terrorist activity"— even on the ground of the "confessions" of the accused themselves? The state's attorney, however, who bases all of his charges on the statements of the accused, suddenly maintains in this connection that the high point of the terrorist activity was the year 1933. The accused Holtzmann recalled with great exactitude that he had a rendezvous with Sedov, the son of Trotsky, in December, 1932, in the Hotel Bristol in Copenhagen, and in addition that he had received terrorist orders from Trotsky himself. There are two things surprising about this confession: 1. Numerous witnesses have come forward to testify that Sedov never was in Copenhagen. 2. Since 1917 the Hotel Bristol has not existed in Copenhagen. (It was rebuilt in 1936.—Ed.) A series of statements and "confessions" of Kamenev, Zinoviev, and Smirnov seem to be shrewdly calculated blows against the whole case of the prosecution. Several times Zinoviev says more than it 58
