Five years ago, on February 15, 1938, Leon Trotsky’s son and closest collaborator died in Paris suddenly after a minor operation, under mysterious circumstances. All attempts to investigate were frustrated by the French secret police – it was the era of the Stalin-Laval pact. Managing editor of the famous Russian language Bulletin of the Opposition, Sedov despite his youth was a qualified Marxist theoretician in his own right. No tribute can compare with Trotsky’s own, the immortal pamphlet which he dedicated to the proletarian youth, Leon Sedov – Son, Friend, Fighter (Pioneer Publishers, 1938).
