How can the trend of suppression of the Holocaust in the Soviet period be explained?

In the post-war period, the Holocaust in the territories of the USSR was not denied, but the discussion of the topic was undesirable for the authorities. The official position considered the Soviet people, who suffered during the war and under German occupation, as a single entity. Therefore, at places of Jewish mass murder, commemoration signs stated that "peaceful Soviet citizens" were killed there.
