1943 May 8, ISRAEL CHAIM WILNER "Jurek" ( Warsaw, Poland)

Died together with Mordechai Anielewicz in the bunker at Mila 18. Wilner ( 1916-1943) was an important figure in the resistance and served as the liaison between the Jewish underground ( ZOB) and the Polish home army. When asked about the chances of surviving the uprising he replied "We do not wish to save our lives. None of us will come out of this alive. We want to save the honor of mankind."
