Konstantin Shilov - A Soviet officer, survivor of Mauthausen (36 mins)

Born in 1913 in Samara province (Russia), Konstantin Alexandrovitch Shilov was captured by German forces in September 1941, while commanding a Soviet artillery division. Having survived POW camps, he was deported in summer 1944 to Mauthausen, and later to the Ebensee satellite camp, where he was liberated in May 1945. In his 2002 testimony, he describes SS punishments and executions, the murder of sick prisoners in the infirmary, revenge killings of hated Kapos and the suffering of former Soviet prisoners after liberation.
