What is the difference between these guys and Oetzi the Iceman? Is it because we don’t know their names that we give them a proper Christian burial and we stick Oetzi in a padlocked freezer?

This is a pet peeve of mine. I chalk it up to evolutionary theory. Some humans are worth less than others.

The article mentions that the German soldiers were identified and efforts were being made to contact any family members.

You’re right, any of these German unknowns (and it’s likely that there will be some) should be enshrined in Germany’s unknown soldier monument, if they have one or more of those.
