Nobody is forgotten, nothing is forgotten!

In the scientific literature and journalism in the history of the Second World War is still some debate about the number of irreversible losses, the Soviet Union.

irrecoverable losses of the Red (Soviet) Army were
11 944 100 people, including those killed 6 885 000 people missing, captured 4 559 000. In total, the Soviet Union lost
26 600 000 citizens.

Of these, Stalag 326 (VI-K)-Stukenbrock in Germany, died at the hands of Nazi executioners 65000 people (but this data is estimated, according to archival documents and memoirs of survivors of the horrors of Nazi captivity - who died more than 75000 people).
