The Soviet Union issued an ultimatum to Lithuania before midnight of June 14, 1940. The Soviets, using a formal pretext, demanded to allow an unspecified number of Soviet soldiers to enter the Lithuanian territory and to form a new pro-Soviet government (later known as the "People's Government"). The ultimatum and subsequent incorporation of Lithuania into the Soviet Union stemmed from the division of Eastern Europe into the German and Russian spheres of influence in the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact by aurora

From July 1941, the Wehrmacht imprisoned over 100,000 Soviet prisoners of war in camps on Lüneburg Heath. The so-called "Russians' camps" at Wietzendorf, Oerbke and Bergen-Belsen did not even have the most basic forms of housing. When the POWs arrived at the camps, they were suffering from malnutrition and were insufficiently dressed. In October 1941, the Wehrmacht transferred 1,000 Soviet POWs from Wietzendorf to Neuengamme.
