Fraternal Greetings, etc.


Well, for all the Trotskyites out there, here's his autograph. I'm not entirely sure why Nantes has this letter from him, instead of the archives in Paris, but there you go.

Renegade Eye would probably know, he's a Trotskyist. It probably has something to do with an internationale he presided over. He conducted at least one, or was somehow involved with one, even after he was removed from power, and I think it might have been conducted partly in opposition to Stalin.

Nantes might have been where it was held, which would explain why they would have it.

Okay, I looked into it. Trotsky's son, Lev Sedov, died in Paris after an appendix operation in 1938. This is from his letter to the French consulate (from Mexico) trying to get them to lock up any of the son's documents so that the Soviets wouldn't get a hold of them. Pretty interesting actually.
