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?

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.
