    Do you know if they were from Turkey or if they were Soviet prisoners of war from the Central Asian republics who turned Axis? (the name "Ostturkisch" would imply the latter)

    From Hitler's Renegades, p. 123:

    In parallel to the RNNA were the so-called Eastern Legions (Ostlegionen). In late 1941, Hitler was visited by General Erkilet of the Turkish General Staff, who urged the Führer to intervene on behalf of Red Army POWs of Turkic nationality. Hitler, eager to recruit Turkey as an ally, granted permission in November for the creation of a Turkistani legion. The experiment was such a success that by the end of the year three more Eastern Legions had been formed... As a gesture to court the Turks, was the formation of the Turkistani 162nd (Turkish) Infantry Division to serve as the parent unit for the various legion batallions.

    Most of the members of Ostturkischer division were Turks from Azerbaican and some other Turks from Turkey and also Caucausia. As I know there were also Circassians in the division to fight against Russia.
