Short biography
According to The New York Times, Dr. Janusz Bardach was born in Odessa, Ukraine, and moved with his family to Poland in 1920. In 1940, during World War II, he had an accident with the Soviet tank he was driving and was sentenced to 10 years hard labor in the Russian gulag. After his release, he studied medicine in Moscow and returned to Poland, heading up an early program in plastic surgery there. He emigrated to the USA in 1972 and the next year became chairman of the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City. He also held other posts, administrative and teaching, at the university's Medical College before retiring in 1991. He described his prison camp experiences in the memoir Man Is Wolf to Man: Surviving the Gulag (1998), written with Kathleen Gleeson.
