Leon Trotsky Denounces Stalin While in Exile in Mexico Ca. 1937Unknown - 1937
Leon Trotsky, one of the leaders of the Bolshevik movement, was instrumental in bringing communism to Russia. However, he later clashed with Joseph Stalin, who arranged to have Trotsky expelled from the Communist Party and forced to leave the Soviet Union. Trotsky accepted an offer of asylum in Mexico in 1936, and from there began angrily denouncing Stalin's increasing powers and the direction he was taking the Soviet Union. In 1940, a Soviet agent assassinated Trotsky in Mexico as part of Stalin's plan to eliminate those he viewed as threats to his power.
