Kudasheva-Rolland stored in the Maxim GorkyArchive, concerning the so-called “Victor Serge case” (1933–1936), i.e. the most resonant stance by thecommunist dissident against Stalin’s policy and his political methods. On the evidence of Kudasheva’s lettersto M. Gorky’s secretary P. P.

To her letters she attached a numberof published articles about “the case of Victor Serge” and the political repressions in the Soviet Union fromthe French, Belgian and Swiss newspapers and magazines (in particular, “Les Humbles”), which she hadsupplied with her translation and commentaries.
