Soviet bunkers on Polish ground

Resistance point Duńkowice

Lying on the east bank of the San River, Duńkowice was under Soviet occupation from 1939 to 1941. During this period, fortifications were built there along the Molotov Line, a strip of border fortifications on the demarcation line between the USSR and the Third Reich. Duńkowice comprised the Rawsko-Ruski Fortified Region, and the village was given two machine-gun shelters - PDOT-1 and 2, allowing for long-term defence. They are located behind Duńkowice, in the direction of Piaski, on the north side of the road. The one closer to the road is in better condition, while the more distant one has been thrown off its foundations. The fortifications were occupied by the Germans as early as 22 June 1941.
