On August 20, 1940 at 5:20 p.m., exiled Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky welcomed a man he thought was a friend into his private study in Mexico City. Moments later, Trotsky lay bleeding on the floor, victim of a grisly blow to the head that ended his life. • The would-be assassin was undercover Soviet agent Ramón Mercader who gained access to the heavily guarded compound of the world’s most famous political exile and killed him with an ax. • Nearly 79 years after Trotsky’s assassination, the infamous ax used to kill him along with a trail of additional evidence is now featured in the Museum’s new Lethal Action exhibit. • The artifact was donated to the Spy Museum, courtesy of espionage collector and founding board member H. Keith Melton, who spent years searching for it. • Explore the gallery for more stories and other intriguing additions to SPY’s collection. 📷: Erik Sharar. . . . . . . . . . #internationalspymuseum#spymuseum#museum#spy#spies#trotsky#iceaxe#assassin#stalin#history#dc#artifacts#spyhistory
