Transcript The Witchcraft Trial in Moscow By FRIEDRICH ADLER (Secretary of the Labor and Socialist International) Because of the wave of indignation which passed over public opinion in Europe and America as a result of the trial of Zinoviev, Kamenev and fourteen other defendants, the People's Commissariat of Justice of the U.S.S.R. decided to issue the reports of the court proceedings, in so far as they had been published by the Russian Government Press, as a propaganda pamphlet in English, French and German. As far as we can tell, the text of the pamphlet only differs verbally from that published in the Communist "International Press Correspondence." As the material is now generally available, to the extent to which the Soviet Government is prepared to allow it to be used, the moment for a definite consideration has arrived. AN ATTEMPT AT AN UNDERSTANDING WITH GEORGI DIMITROV "It is impossible to read, without a feeling of deepest indignation, the telegram sent in such haste to the Soviet Government regarding the trial of the terrorist Trotsky-Zinoviev centre, by the official representatives of the Labor and Socialist International and the International Federation of Trade Unions, signed by de Brouckere, Adler, Citrine and Schevenels." In these words Georgi Dimitrov, Secretary of the Communist International, began his article, in which he poured out a veritable flood of insults and misrepresentations against the "reactionary leaders" who signed the telegram to the Soviet Government. From the tone adopted by Dimitrov it is possible to see the embarrassment felt by all who are obliged to cover up the damage done in Moscow, an embarrassment which is all the greater the more one knows of the devastating effects which it was bound to produce in "Western Europe. Nothing would be easier than to strike Dimitrov with his own weapons and to give expression to the exasperation and indignation which we are much more entitled to feel than the semi-official spokesmen of Moscow.
