Transcript 21 THE NEW REPUBLIC The Trial of the Trotskyites in Russia Sixteen persons have been put to death in Soviet Russia for a conspiracy to assassinate a large group of the present leaders in that country and to overturn the government. Nearly all of those executed had formerly held high place; they included two once world- famous figures, Zinoviev and Kamenev. Others now under investigation are equally well known: among them are Bukharin, Rykov and Radek. The sixteen already tried and executed described themselves as Trotskyites and implicated that famous former leader, at one time second in importance only to Lenin himself. Trotsky now living in exile in Norway, repudiates all complicity and announces he will soon issue documents to prove that instead of being guilty, he has been the victim of a plot against him concocted by the Russian G. P. U. The trial which ended a few days ago was, to Western eyes, an extraordinary spectacle. There were no witnesses for the defense and none for the state except the accused themselves. All sixteen admitted they were followers of the philosophy of Trotsky who, as is well known, has always demanded communist revolutions in all parts of the world at the earliest possible moment. Fourteen of the sixteen admitted participation in the plans to murder a dozen of the present Russian leaders. Even those who denied terroristic activities made no appeal for clemency, although two others did so. The prisoners accused themselves and each other with the utmost vehemence, their general attitude being one of sinners who have repented after having seen the light. The charges made against Trotsky, in a conspiracy that began in 1932, included sending money into the U.S.S.R. for the plotters and forwarding at least one secret communication, written in invisible ink on the back of a magazine. The defendants also implicated the present German government, charging that five assassins sent in from abroad were aided by forged passports prepared by the Gestapo, the German secret police. This charge has been met by Germany with a stony silence which, as international relations go nowadays, is tantamount to an admission of guilt. One of these sixteen men sat through last summer's meeting of the Communist International with a Browning pistol on his person, waiting vainly to get close enough to Stalin to shoot him. Three other attempts on Stalin's life were made. The defendants were implicated in the assassination of Kirov, which ought to set at rest the persistent reports that his murder was non-political and was made the excuse 60
