The prisoners were held with dignity and even defiant. When the division commander, General Leclerc, called them traitors and said: “How could you, the French, wear someone else's uniform?” One of them replied: “But how can you, general, wear American?” (The division was equipped by the Americans). They say it angered Leclerc, and he ordered the execution of prisoners.

May 8, 1945 they were executed. The bodies were thrown on the spot, and only three days later the Americans buried them.
