Interested in manipulated photos? Then have a look at this site, http://www.alteredimagesbdc.org/ . The original image (seen above) shows Nikolai Yezhov, chief of the Soviet secret police walking alongside Joseph Stalin (on his left side) and a third official close to Stalin's right arm. After presiding over mass arrests and executions during the Great Purge (1936-38), Yezhov became a victim himself. He was arrested, sentenced to death, executed (in 1940) - and removed from the image.
