POW fact-finding mission out of Poltava Airbase

Before my father became the final commander of the Poltava Aerodrome in the spring of 1945, he witnessed an atrocity near Lublin, Poland while on a mission to find American POWs and downed airmen. He came across a couple of hundred mixed POWs that had been killed by being run over with a locomotive on the rail tracks. Does anyone know of any other accounts, in books or other readable sources, of such practice during the course of the war? Thank you for your time.
