Compte-rendu réalisé par Reinhard Eisener

Texte intégral

1Far from providing a systematic description of the short-lived Turkestan Bureau of the Comintern in Tashkent, its organization, functions and activities, this article basically is a presentation of some findings about this institution in the fond 544 (content?) of the former Central Party Archive in Moscow. Gilensen’s interpretations are partly rather speculative, because it is evident that there is a lack of sufficient knowledge about the general historical situation, related circumstances (the Anglo-Soviet negotiations), or the role of and the interrelations with other Moscow institutions in Turkestan, e. g. Turkkomissija, Turkbjuro CK ; that the Turkestan bureau of the Comintern followed in the footsteps of Sovinterprop (the Council of International Propaganda) is not even mentioned. Nevertheless, these document findings deserve some interest. They show rather clearly that this undertaking of the Comintern, besides causing some internal trouble, was almost totally inefficient, and that lots of money was wasted on more or less doubtful revolutionary efforts and figures.
