Transcript had shown solidarity in any way with "the accomplices of Fascism, the allies of the Gestapo" to dissolve into nothingness. INTERNATIONAL LABOR AND THE ACCUSED Nobody who knows anything of the history of the Labor Movement since the war can harbor the suspicion that we have any particular sympathy for Zinoviev, Kamenev or Trotsky, whether political or personal. I have never known any of the sixteen defendants personally, and the names of a dozen of them I only read for the first time in the indictment. My enmity toward Zinoviev is of a somewhat earlier date than Dimitrov's. I recognized him to be one of those mainly responsible for the split in the ranks of the working-class at a time when Dimitrov still had to honor him as President of the Communist International. We condemned Zinoviev when he caused the infamous "twenty-one conditions" to be adopted at the Second Congress of the Communist International in 1920 and came to Halle a few months later in order to split the Independent Social-Democratic Party of Germany on their basis. We condemned Zinoviev when at the same Congress of the Communist International he called for a split in the International Trade Union Movement and when, after this "frontal attack" had miscarried, he degraded the serious problem of the unity of the working-class to the deceitful tactics of the united front maneuver at the Fourth Congress of the Communist International in 1922. We saw through the inventor of the united front maneuver as a "double-dealer" and opposed him a dozen years before this really suitable word was hurled at him in Moscow. And Trotsky? The personal contact which I had with him before and during the war was brought to a drastic end by Trotsky himself in November 1919, when he thought it necessary to put forward personally the proposal that I should be deprived of my honorary membership of the Russian Soviet Congress. We were never Trotskyists, not when the Communists of all countries had to walk in awe of the supreme leader of the Red Army, nor when six months after Lenin's death Stalin presided jointly with Trotsky over the Fifth Congress of the Communist International (1924), nor later when the struggle for the succession had led to Trotsky's proscription. The defendants in the Moscow trial and their alleged "spiritus rector," Trotsky, were not our friends when they were great rulers in the Soviet Union, nor were they when they went into opposition in order to replace the dictatorship of Stalin by their own. We had no reason whatever to expect from Trotsky or Zinoviev that the development of the Soviet Union towards the Socialist democracy for which we are hoping, would be accelerated if they returned to power.
