Warsaw

Miła 18 Bunker

  ul. Miła 2 ,   Mirów & Muranów         12 Sep 2019
A grass mound and monument now marks the spot from where the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943 was lead by the Jewish Combat Organisation (ŻOB - Żydowska Organizacja Bojowa), and where many of its fighters, including commander-in-chief Mordechai Anielewicz, are buried. Three weeks after the start of the uprising, the bunker was discovered by the Nazis on 08 May and tear gas was used to try and force the fighting command out. Some did escape, however, the majority chose to commit suicide by ingesting poison rather than surrender. Their bodies were never exhumed after 1945 and the site became a war memorial. Due to post-war changes in Warsaw's urban landscape, the current site no longer holds the address 'Miła 18' and can now be found on the corner of ul. Miła 2 and ul. Dubois.
