Can someone help me on this photograph from The Atlantic?

http://cdn.theatlantic.com/static/infocus/ww2_13/w27_3c03054u.jpg
from: http://www.theatlantic.com/infocus/2011/09/world-war-ii-women-at-war/100145/
Captioned: Polish women are led through woods to their executions by German soldiers sometime in 1941.

I can't tell if they are German or Soviet, as their helmets look like the early M36 helmets. The German helmets are not nearly as rounded off at the top, either, as the Soviet M36's are.

The greatcoats also look Soviet as well.

Could this be a caption error? Am I delusional? What are all of your thoughts?

The man on the far right has a shoulder board/strap visible on his left shoulder. The pre-43 greatcoats, like the tunics of the same era, did not have shoulder boards.

Upon closer inspection, I think that might be some sort of ghosting effect. It's also happening on his helmet.

Must be pretty ninjaish russians when they're carrying german bayonets, have german overcoats, wear their belt eguipment like majority of germans did and are carrying Mausers as well.

Spoiler!

You might want to check your monitor settings in case if it made it more obfuscated than it is.
