In 1915 Alexander Parvus (Israel Helphand) made plans for the Bolsheviks' (i.e.
the Illuminati's) seizure of power by the aid of the German secret service.
(Nesta Webster and Kurt Kerlen, "Boche and Bolshevik", New York, 1923, pp.
33-34.) Parvus was close to him and had great influence over him.
Parvus met Lenin in Zurich in May 1915 to discuss his plans.
