In heavy ion collisions at beam energies of 1-2 AGeV, strangeness production can be observed below its elementary production threshold. In April and May 2012, 7.3 billion Au(1.23 GeV per nucleon)+Au collisions have been recorded by the HADES detector, installed at the Helmholtzzentrum fuer Schwerionenforschung (GSI) in Darmstadt, Germany. In this collision system the weakly decaying strange hadrons K0s and Λ were measured and can be reconstructed. In order to draw conclusions on strangeness production mechanisms in heavy ion collisions the yields can be compared to non-strange particle production, i.e. charged pions. In this contribution preliminary particle spectra of Λ hyperons and K0s mesons measured in these collisions are presented.
