Mauthausen POW Camp WW1 - 1916

Post by Volyn » 31 Jul 2020 22:45

I have heard that Russian POWs were sent to the Mauthausen prison camp in Austria after the Baranovichi Offensive which was fought from 3-25 JUL 1916, I would like to confirm this? ... ausen-camp

The Russian losses amounted to 30,000 killed, 47,000 wounded and 2,000 prisoners, not sure if the prisoner number is accurate but that is what was listed. ... btype=main
