The Testament of Leon Trotsky: In Illustration


On this day 80 years ago, while in exile in Coyoacán, Mexico, Trotsky penned his last Testament, well aware that he might soon be killed or will die because of his deteriorating health. This short text was written a few months before his assassination by Ramón Mercader, a Stalinist agent. In it, Trotsky reflects on his life and his hope for future revolutionary generations.
