Summary/Abstract: …At the same time, with what may be the last job I have left to do, I would like to try to make up for what I have sinned against my fellow man in the long years since I was an enthusiastic communist by - unsuspecting what I was doing - them as one of Moscow's most active servants unwillingly and unwillingly handed over to the red executioners. I sacrificed the best years of my life for communism and stood up for my convictions in prisons and concentration camps. For I always believed that communism would bring freedom to my people and free the world from the grave shortcomings of old society. I believed the promises of the "leaders" in Moscow that with the Bolshevization of my country free competition would begin immediately, that the able would win, that there would then be no more unemployment and exploiters and that we could live without coercion and free from fear. // ... // But I understand you, comrades, if you only get angry with me, the "traitor". I, too, was deaf to all arguments - until the enforcers of the military revolution came and built their rule. So, I threw everything down and left ... // At least check the facts and think about what to deduce from them. There is also the "Unknown Soldier" who fell with millions of his own kind in the struggle for freedom since Moscow became the center of the world revolution. My book is dedicated to his memory, which may soon be the testament of a stranger if I am tracked down and "finished off" with a shot in the neck or a strand. You know how to do that.
