Brezhnev dies and goes to Hell. He's put into a kettle of boiling oil. After a while he sees Hitler close by, sitting behind a desk, reading a book. So he says indignantly,
'Are you telling me I've sinned more than him? So how come I'm suffering, and he's reading a book?'
One of the demons says,
'He's not reading a book. He's translating the complete works of Karl Marx into Hebrew.'

Along the same lines, from a Russian friend of mine :

Brezhnev dies and goes to Hell. He is met at the infernal gates by Satan, who leads him to a lake of boiling tar. "For your crimes against humanity," says Satan, "you are sentenced to stand in this lake of boiling tar up to your neck for all eternity." "But," says Brezhnev, "I see Hitler over there, and he's only standing in the lake up to his waist. What gives?" "Oh, don't mind him," says Satan. "He's standing on Stalin's shoulders."
