The Bunker Monument at 18 Mila Street is where the Ghetto Uprising was coordinated by Mordechaj Anielewicz who committed suicide along with his girlfriend and many staff on the 8th May by blowing up the bunker. Anielewicz was involved in the first armed resistance on the 18th January 1943 by preventing Jews from being sent to extermination camps. The Warsaw ghetto uprising started on 19th April and was crushed by the Germans on the 16th May. His body was never found and it is believed to have been carried off and cremated along with the other dead. In early 1944 he was posthumously awarded the Polish Military Cross by the Polish Government in exile.
