March 2017 - The Truth about Trotskyism: Moscow Trial January 1937

The Truth about Trotskyism: Moscow Trial January 1937This is a very interesting account of the 1937 Moscow Show Trials, which took place in January and were the trials of 17 men accused of counter-revolutionary activities in Moscow.  Many of these men were executed.

23 January 2017 was the 80th anniversary of this historic event, and this book gives the facts behind the trials in fascinating detail, along with the complete text of The Indictment.  Published by The Communist Party of Great Britain in February 1937, it has an application form to join the Communist Party on the back, and urges readers to ‘root out’ Trotskyism.
