Polish army soldier #poland #holocaust

My great uncle Oysez(Sheye) Jacker/Katz was a soldier in the Polish cavalry during WW2. We have a photo of him in uniform. He was captured by the Nazis and imprisoned in a camp near Lublin. Family were told that he escaped but froze to death in the snow. My questions are: 1. Did the Polish cavalry actually ride horses? 2.Are there any accessible records that would have information about his conscription 3. In which What camp near Lublin would he have been imprisoned? For some reason my the word ‘stalag’ seems to come to mind? If so what number stalag? many suggestions would be most gratefully received. 

thank you
