For some reason got thinking about the German General Helmuth Weilding who issued the final call for German Soldiers to surrender. I know that he was captured by the Soviets but where exactly was he held and what were the conditions like? Also, why were high ranking PoWs like Weilding held so for long? I know in Weilding's case he died in 1955 before he could be released. I know nothing about the subject, so apologise in advance for any presumed stupidity.
