Probably the same things that the Nazis died for: personal ambition, power, some ridiculous and contrived ideological fairy-tales, etc. Most died because they couldn't be troubled to think for themselves, and allowed some self appointed 'expert' to decide their lives for them. For a large proportion of the rest, like the Cheka, or the SS camp guards, or the Eisenstruppen, or the NKVD, they were sadists who didn't know when the jig was up.
