comment What were the advantages of dual power in the beginning of Castro's Cuba
@Samuel Russell NEP was demolished in the 1930s and it never involved Communists. Social origin of early Communists also was not involving any sufficient percent of "former bourgeoisie", there was some intelligentsia, but also in small proportion. Other points seem not to have any connection with bourgeoiusness whatsoever.

comment How did Castro gain control over the Cuban military and police?
"It seems unlikely to me that the military and police would just unquestionably accept Castro's authority" - this is the problematic sentence. In your question you assert something doubtful and request explanation. The revolution was very popular among the populance and Castro was the leader of the revolution. You can compare him to other revolutionary leaders, such as George Washington.

"a bourgeois clique claiming to be a working class party" - sorry but what is "bourgeois" with Communists say in the USSR?

@Bak1139 seems there was only one obersturmfurer Kraffe, and the other name is a typo. He was an SD officer arrived from Minsk for the massacre.

@Bak1139 Jews were re-settled to the ghetto and non-Jews were prohibited to speak with them. Upon spotting a Jew on a street, the non-Jews were required to switch the street side, any greetings were prohibited as well, including nodding the head or raising the hat from the distance. Upon installing their regime, the Germans made teacher Egof a burgomаster of the town Zembin because of his German origin. At 18 August all Jews in Zembin (760 to 900) were totally killed, with assistance of Egof.

@Bak1139 I only found information about David Davidovich Egof. Before the war he was a teacher of German language near Borisov. He was tried after the war and got 25 years in prison, after the term he was released. rpp.nm.ru/teacher/teacher.html

comment Legal grounds of functioning of Third Reich concentration camps
You ask, had the Parliament voted for them. Actually the Enabling Act gave the cabinet, i.e. Hitler the right to issue any laws they wanted.
