Marcel Eugen Sedletzky was born March 29, 1923 to Elena and Apollon Sedletzky in Tsaritsyn (now Volgograd), Russia, a port
city on the Volga River. Sedletzky's Polish father was an architect who worked primarily in landscape design, while his mother
was a physician. In the early 1930's everything changed dramatically for the Sedletzky family when Apollon was taken away
by uniformed Bolshevik soldiers and sent to Siberia. Mother and son fled to Poland, where Apollon's family lived. After
an unknown length of time there, long enough however for Sedletzky to attend elementary school, they moved south, where he
attended the German-run Real Gymnasium for Men in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. He graduated in 1941 with a Matura degree, the equivalent
to two years of junior college in the United States.
