That is a war grave and it needs to be completely left alone.  I don't know the figures on WW I German U-boat sailors, but in WW II, only 25% of German U-boat sailors ever made it back home.

I dunno...if I was a family member of one of the deceased I would prefer the bodies be brought back and given a proper funeral, not left to rot on the bottom of the ocean.

I could see where each loved one would feel differently about it.  If it were my father, I would want him to remain where he had fallen in combat, especially after he had lain in the same place for approx. 100 years.

Probably very few of them were saved if they had also been in Hitler's youth camps.

I hope they made their peace with God in those final moments.

It's a horrible reminder of the ravages of war.
