The construction of this heavy bunker began around July 1939. It took the Germans 2 days (2-3 September 1939) to conquer it. 7 defenders of the 80 men strong garrison perished. In 1944, the Germans reused the former Polish fortifications in the Węgierska Górka region with the intention to halter the Russian advance. The German defence was no match for the overwhelming power of the red army and was forced to retreat.

Today, the bunker is turned into a museum. The exhibit is mainly about the battle of the Węgierska Górka region. A plaque attached on the bunker commemorates the soldiers who perished while defending it.
