slide8

The NVKD

was among the most brutal, repressive, and inhumane police organisations of human history.

The NKVD\'s duties, while multifaceted, included the administration of the gulag\'s and prison system, the police, internal affairs for the police, and served as the main apparatus for carrying out the purges and mass executions of Communists and innocent Soviet civilians in the 1930s.

slide10

During the NKVD\'s reign of terror (1930-1953),786,098 Soviet people were executed, 3.5 million were imprisoned, and 2 million people died in prison and exile.

The vast majority of executions — 681,692, or87% of the total — came in 1937 and 1938, corresponding to the years the Soviet Government required the NKVD to fulfill a predetermined quota of arrests and executions.

This quota indicated that each city in the country held several thousand "traitors" that must be found and executed. (Data from: The Road to Terror, Getty and Naumov, Yale University Press, 1999. Pages 587-594.)

slide12

At its height in January 1, 1941, the NKVD held 1,500,524 Soviet people in prisons and gulags.

Death rates while incarcerated (due to hunger, exhaustion, disease, and natural causes) varied from 5-10% of all new arrivals.

The vast majority of those in prison were men (~ 93% from 1934 - 1941), with 50-70% (depending on the year in question) between the ages of 25 and 40.

Those with a primary education or who were semi-literate were the most likely in prison, steadily representing around 80% of the total. (Data from: The History of the Gulag, Khlevniuk, Yale University Press, 2004, pages 307-319).

Joseph Stalin

Nicknames:

Man of Steel

Ruler with an Iron Fist

Koba

One of Koba’s most famous quotes lives on in infamy:

“Death solves all problems - no man, no problem.”

slide15

Koba, it is conservatively estimated, had some 20 million problems, all of which he solved via collectivization, dekulakization, the famines, the Great Terror, the purges, the Gulag Archipelago, Vorkuta, Kolyma, Solovetsky, Suhanovka - on and on it went, decade after decade after decade.

Twenty million senseless killings. Twenty million ‘problems’ solved. Over a quarter of a century of relentless, grinding evil.

(Geheime Staatspolizei; Secret State Police), a police force, often including members of the SS, were responsible for state security and the consignment of people to concentration camps.

The Gestapo\'s main tool was the protective custody procedure which allowed it to take actions against "enemies of the Reich."

By 1934, Heinrich Himmler became head of the Gestapo throughout Germany. In 1939 the Gestapo was consolidated with other police forces to form the RSHA (Reich Security Main Office).

The RSHA, including the Gestapo and the SS, assumed the task of enslaving the "inferior races" and carried out a major role in the "Final Solution".
