It is in her political education have given more attention than in other military units. In addition, the persistence added unwillingness to surrender. Many essesovtsy knew that in contrast to the Wehrmacht, at the mercy of Russian captivity can not count, since more often than men after questioning in an ss uniform elementary shot, and sometimes not at all taken prisoner. The formal establishment of the 3rd ss Division 'Totenkopf' occurred in 1939 in the camp at Dachau. Sportsman has similar goals.
