Furr-Evidence of Leon Trotsky’s Collaboration

Furr-Evidence of Leon Trotsky’s Collaboration

Published by Sean
This essay is an inquiry into the evidence that Leon Trotsky may have collaborated with German and/or Japanese officials, whether governmental or military, during the 1930s.
Trotsky was charged with and convicted in absentia of such collaboration at the three Moscow “Show,” or public, Trials of 1936, 1937 and 1938.1 Trotsky and his son Leon Sedov2 were absent defendants and central figures in all these trials. Trotsky himself proclaimed the charges false, but they were widely though not universally credited until 1956. In February of that year Nikita Khrushchev delivered his famous “Secret Speech” to the 20th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU). Aside from much other matter that will not concern us here Khrushchev hinted, without expressly affirming, that at least some of the defendants in these trials were punished unjustly.
