This chapter discusses the activities of the security police during the Second World War. It describes the mass deportations of different nationalities and the notorious murder of Polish military personnel and other prisoners in 1940. It also documents Lavrentii Beria's attempts to master the new tasks given to the Soviet political police by the Politburo and to establish a new cadre of Chekists. In addition, it reveals that the first of a series of ethnic deportations by the NKVD in the late summer of 1941 marked the war years.
