READ FULL STORY -- WWII Horror: The Tragic Truth About Soviet POWs!

During World War II, a significant number of Soviet prisoners of war suffered greatly while in German custody. Between June 1941 and January 1942, an estimated 2.8 million Soviet POWs faced extreme hardships, including starvation, exposure, disease, and mistreatment.

Historical records suggest that out of the 5.7 million Soviet prisoners detained, approximately 3.3 million tragically lost their lives. This stands in stark contrast to the much lower mortality rate among British and U.S. prisoners, with 8,300 fatalities out of 231,000, equating to 3.6%.

It's important to remember the human cost of war, and to honor the memory of those who suffered. Today, we strive to learn from the past and build a future of peace and understanding.
