Finding the home of Leon Trotsky, the genious of the Russian Revolution, and the organizer of the Soviet Union's Red Army; living in Mexico City, seems suprising, until you learn the history of all of how this could happen.

First of all, Joseph Stalin was fearful that Trotsky could take over the power that Stalin had acquired in the Soviet Union so he wished to have Trotsky killed. This made it necessary for Trotsky to get as far away as he could from the Soviet Union.

Mexico had finished her revolution and needed intellectuals to further Mexico's economy thus the political climate under president Lazaro Cardenas was such that Mexico became a haven for revolutionaries from all over the world. With all of the problems in Nazi Germany, and in Russia, refugies from all over Europe began to move to Mexico and to live in Mexico City. One of the first to enjoy the freedom to enter and live in Mexico was Leon Trotsky and his wife, Natalia Sedova. The Communist Party had a group of followers that lived in Mexico in the Coyoacan neighborhood of Mexico City and they had obtained a certain degree of influence in Mexico. To this day, the Coyoacan neighborhood has a different degree of intellectual flavor than the rest of Mexico.

Some of these people who were to become friends of the Trotsky's were the painters, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo.

There were two major attempts to kill Trotsky while he was in Mexico. The first was led by the painter David Siqueiros who had been a commander in the Spainish Civil War, on May 24, 1940 at 4am. This group brought a machine gun to the compound of Trotsky and managed to put about 200 rounds into the doors and walls of the house. Trotsky survived by hiding under the beds.

After this attack the house was even more heavly fortified and guarded. Doors were bricked in, and made more narrow, and additional gun ports and guards were added to the compound.

The second attack was on August 20, 1940 by a KGB agent who had gained the trust of Trotsky by representing himself as a businessman & boyfriend of Trotsky's secretary, Sylvia Ageloff, also a trusted friend. This process of trust took a two year period of time. Finially, the alleged new friend, entered the home of Trotsky to show him an article that had been written. While in Trotsky's study he removed a concealed ice pick axe from his coat striking, Trotsky in the head. Trotsky died about 24 hours later.

The killer spent 20 years in prison and when released received The Order Of Lenin from the Soviet Union when he went back there to live. His name was Jaime Ramon Mercader del Rio. We learn later on after the fall of the Soviet Union that this agent was personally selected by the head of the KBG and that he had personally met with Joseph Stalin to receive his orders to kill Trosky.

Trotsky was born Lev Davidovich Bronstein on 7 November 1879 in Yanovka, Ukraine, then part of Russia. His father was a prosperous Jewish farmer. Trotsky became involved in underground activities as a teenager. He was soon arrested, jailed and exiled to Siberia where he joined the Social Democratic Party. Eventually, he escaped Siberia and spent the majority of the next 15 years abroad, including a spell in London.

Before you feel too sorry for Trotsky, remember, it was the Russian civil war, that turned Trotsky into one of the century's most effective amateur generals, but the Russian civil war also unleashed his capacities as a mass murderer.

The many sailors at Kronstadt, proclaiming their right to opinions of their own about the Revolution, were massacred upon his order.

He also stripped women of all of their clothing and beat them with a whip, in public, in front of a huge gathering of his soldiers.

In our opinion, he is of no great loss to our world! He got what he deserved!

We visited the home of Leon Trotsky in 1982, and again on November 23, 2011.

The Mexico City International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional de la Ciudad de México or AICM), also called Benito Juárez International Airport (IATA: MEX, ICAO: MMMX) is the major commercial airport that serves Mexico City, the capital of Mexico. It is also Mexico's and Latin America's busiest airport!

We would suggest using this airport if you wish to visit the Leon Trotsky Home. We also would suggest visiting the Leon Trotsky Home, as a short side trip, when you are visiting other places of interest, in the Coyoacán neighborhood, of Mexico City D.F. Mexico. It is not that far out of your way!
