USHMM: First Stahlecker Report (15 October 1941) proves 118,000 unarmed Jews killed by Einsatzgruppen in 4 months

Yesterday, the USHMM posted about the "First Stahlecker report" on Facebook, days after Holocaust revisionism was banned from the platform.

The post:
After the war, prosecutors at the Nuremberg Trials used the Nazis' own documents against them. Among the records that helped to convict 22 high-ranking Nazi officials in what was then called "the biggest murder trial in history" was a report by the commander of Einsatzgruppe A, which perpetrated mass shooting operations in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Belarus. On this day 79 years ago, SS-Brigadier General Walther Stahlecker reported to the Reich Security Main Office in Berlin that men under his command had murdered at least 118,000 unarmed Jewish men, women, and children in less than four months.

I have not seen any thread on this report, only the infamous "Coffin map" which is attached to the second Stahlecker report:

The USHMM post is referencing the first Stahlecker report, which is entitled "Overall report up to 15 October 1941" ("Gesamtbericht bis zum 15. Oktober 1941"). The complete report is 221 pages long. It is located in the Russian archives (GARF 500-4-93) and also published as L-180 in IMT, Vol. 37, pp. 670-717, and NCA, Vol. VII, pp. 978-996

Here is the PDF for the IMT transcript, starting on page 670: https://www.loc.gov/rr/frd/Military_Law ... XXXVII.pdf

I am trying to get a copy of this document in English translation; in the meantime does anyone have comments about it?

OK I finally was able to get an English translation; the website demanded I upload 10 unique files to get it which took a while.

PDF: https://pdfhost.io/v/mRzHzeIAN_Stahleck ... r_1941.pdf or http://web.archive.org/web/202010162340 ... r_1941.pdf

Raw text: https://paste2.org/c5W7XwbE
(Note: There are tables in the original PDF, which are not showing correctly in this text format)

Regarding this document, Arthur Butz comments:
"In connection with these matters, the reader should be informed that, when examining printed reproductions of documents in the IMT and NMT volumes, a handwritten signature not be assumed unless it is specifically stated that the signature is handwritten; “signed” generally means only a typewritten signa-ture. Document 180-L, for example, is reproduced in German in the IMT volumes, and excerpts in English are reproduced in the NMT volumes. In both cases signatures are indicated, but the actual document merely has “gez. Dr. Stahlecker” (signed Dr. Stahlecker) typewritten in two places."

Stahlecker was killed in action in 1942, so he never verified the contents of this report. It is copy 23 of 40, is that the only one we have?

The figure cited by the USHMM is found in Attachment 8 "OVERVIEW OF THE NUMBER OF EXECUTIONS CARRIED OUT TO DATE"
Under "OVERVIEW OF THE NUMBER OF EXECUTED PERSONS" it separates Jews and communists.
The total for Jews is: 118,430
Communists: 3,387

These figures are split up into 4 locations: Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and White Ruthenia.
It says nothing about "men, women and children" though. Exterminationists have also admitted that Einsatzgruppen figures were sometimes estimated or inflated.
I will read through this document in more detail later.
