When Hitler was informed of the extent of the escape, he wanted everyone
killed. That included the camp commandant and his entire command as well as
the recaptured POW's. When he finally calmed down, he ordered that 50 of the

command and court martial-ed for his lenient treatment of the POW's. The
murder of the fifty recaptured POW's was treated as a major issue and
featured prominently at the Nuremberg Tribunal.
