"there were many Jewish commissars who deported Lithvanian civilians as well as non-communist Jews" Indeed, the existence of individual Jewish "rotten apples" that chose even to cooperate with the Nazis - some of the Judenrats and "Jewish ghetto police" (as shown in Polanski's film "The Pianist") is beyond dispute. These "police" were always recruited from communities other than those they were made to patrol, because they lacked a local power base. When Nazi Germany invaded countries like Serbia and Greece, the collaboration regimes set up by the Germans were made up of hated shadowy local figures with no local power base, and there were no local SS divisions. The same cannot be said of many Croatians and Lithuanians, who enthusiastically joined the Waffen SS and Einsatzgruppen.
