BTW regarding "Jewish commissars" as a common theme in Nazi propaganda. From the same source as of 1 January 1941 of 61,110 political officers of the Red Army 3,377 (or 5.5%) were Jewish. For comparison Jews made almost 12% of Red Army's medical officers (2,449 out of 20,872) and about 3.6% of the total Red Army's officer corps.
