From the Video Vault: Trotsky Welcomed by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera

Leon Trotsky, exiled from Russia and living in Mexico, died after being stabbed with an ice pick on this day in 1940. Trotsky lived with painters Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera from 1937 to 1939—though he and Rivera later became enemies after his affair with Kahlo. Watch Kahlo and Rivera welcome Trotsky and his wife to their home.
