Letter to Willi Schlamm, December 24, 1935
|Written||24 December 1935|
Mr. Willi Schlamm
The bearer of this letter [Ciliga] spent several years in Stalin’s prisons. It is the greatest disgrace of our time that the workers’ organizations remain silent about the crimes of the Stalinist bureaucracy. This is only the other side of the tendency to capitulate to fascism. However, it is time that those who are not deceived, corrupted, or simply bribed by the Soviet bureaucracy raise their voices in support of the heroic, revolutionary victims of the Bonapartist caste. Don’t you think that yours should be among them? In my opinion, it is a question of a determined and systematic struggle, which could also open up important perspectives for Europe.
