When Hitler was informed of the extent of the escape, he wanted everyone

the recaptured POW's. When he finally calmed down, he ordered that 50 of the
escapees should be shot and the Colonel von Lindeiner relieved of his
command and court martialed for his lenient treatment of the POWs. The
murder of the fifty recaptured POW's was treated as a major issue and
featured prominently at the Nuremberg Tribunal.
