Page 14 of a draft report by the Commission for Crimes Committed by the Nazis in Kiev from February 1944. The page shows changes made by G.F. Aleksandrov, head of the Propaganda and Agitation Department of the Party's Central Committee. Where the report named the Jewish population as victims of brutal extermination, the new version speaks of "peaceful Soviet citizens." These corrections show that the official concealment of the anti-Jewish nature of the Holocaust had already begun during the war.
