Karl Radek

Biography

Member of the R.S.D.L.P. since its beginning, where he was active in Galicia, Russian Poland and Germany. Took an anti-war stand during WWI. Became a Bolshevik in 1917. In 1923 a member of the Left Opposition; expelled from the party in 1927 as a result. Radek entered the party again in 1930, but was again expelled in 1936. Tried in the Second Moscow Trial, and died while in prison. Serge had written of Radek: “A sparkling writer ... thin, rather small, nervous, full of anecdotes which often had a savage side to them ... just like an old-time pirate.”
