Quote of the Day: When You Chop Wood, Chips Fly

 

“There will be some innocent victims in this fight against Fascist agents. We are launching a major attack on the Enemy; let there be no resentment if we bump someone with an elbow. Better that ten innocent people should suffer than one spy get away. When you chop wood, chips fly.” — Nikolai Yezhov

Today is the 127th anniversary of the birth of Nikolai Yezhov.

Until one day he wasn’t, and instead, he was just another chip of wood.
