...Noticed the same. Sounds like some sections of this soundtrack are more Williams-ish than Horner. I surmised that it is the same source material (there are moments when I swore I was listening to Shinder's List again), but I cannot recall the folk music either, if that is indeed the source. Methinks Horner might have unconsciously (or purposefully) lifted the motif from Williams, being another prominent WWII film set away from the American side of the war...
