Those soldiers— who had been surrounded by the advancing German army and, bereft of supplies, had surrendered in droves in the early phase of the conflict—had been depicted to the public as courageous martyrs who continued to fight for the motherland until their last breath; in reality, however, they had been taken prisoner and either were executed without offering resistance or died from hunger, cold, or slave labor.
