Title: Adolph Joffe and Leon Trotsky, 1918

Description: Russian Bolshevik and communist leader, Leon Trotsky (Lev Davidovich Bronstein; November 7, 1879-August 21, 1940), far right, arrives with fellow Soviet diplomat and communist revolutionary, Adolph Joffe (Adolph Abramovich Joffe; October 10, 1883-November 16, 1927), second from right, in Brest-Litovsk (now Brest Belarus), on March 3, 1918, in order to sign the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk, which ended the war between Russia and Imperial Germany, an act by communist leaders that abandoned Russia’s loyalty to the Allied cause in WWI and allowed more than one million German troops on the Eastern Front to be moved to the Western Front and be employed in massive attacks against Allied forces. Joffe died of illness in 1927 after Joseph Stalin refused to allow him to leave the country to see medical specialists. Trotsky's farewell speech to his friend Joffe at Joffe's furneral was Trotsky's last public speech in the country, Stalin expelling him from Russia shortly thereafter. Trotsky finally settled in Mexico, but condemned the Stalinist dictatorship and for which he was assassinated on Stalin's orders in 1940.
