From what I know, the history of the attack is reported correctly in the article firefighter_raven linked to. The OP article is a little more unclear on the Details - for example, the passengers were mostly KZ prisoners, not "regular" POWs.

It remains unknown what the Nazis were planning to to with the KZ prisoners on board.

There is a monument for those who died in the attack on a special war grave cemetary at Neustadt, as well as several monuments on cemetary around the Deutsche Bucht, were the bodies that were washed ashore were buried.

The Wikipedia article has additional Pictures.
