Abstract
Starting from the analysis we have made on the basis of the archives documents of the collection available at the Police Office of Craiova city, our paper creates a radiography of the leftist extremism manifested in Romania in the interwar period. Therefore, the orders, the circulars, the instructions, the strictly secret and confidential informing notes issued by the Police Office of Craiova and by the police organizations under its jurisdictional authority, throw even more light on the activity carried out by the Comitern and by its branch in Romania, the Romanian Communist Party, regarding not only the liquidation of Romania’s democratic regime and the setting up of the proletariat’s dictatorship, but also regarding the Soviet revisionism, which was claiming, throughout that period, the urgent separation of Bessarabia, and not only, from the Romanian state.

Keywords
the III Internationale, extremism, communism, irredentism, revisionism.
