He won worldwide fame for his defense against Nazi accusations in the Reichstag fire trial of 1933. He headed the Comintern in Moscow (1935–43), then returned to Bulgaria, where he served as prime minister (1945–49). He effected the communist consolidation of power that formed the Bulgarian People's Republic in 1946.
