The death of his wife and Stalins mental breakdown was the main cause of the Great Terror. Stalin effectively elminated all traces of opposition to his rule.

Only later did the world discover that these confessions were brought out after long months of psychological torture and physical abuse. All of the confessors were sentenced to death.
