Dr. Waydenfeld, a physician, was born in Poland in 1925, survived Soviet deportation to a forced labor camp in Siberia during World War II, and later fought in the war as an officer in the Polish Second Corps under General Anders. He is survived by his wife Danuta, who resides in London, and his daughter Alice Waydenfeld Faintich, who resides in Virginia. Click each item to read: an interview with Dr. Waydenfeld conducted by his daughter Alice; an excerpt from The Ice Road; and his blog on the Huffington Post.

The funeral was held on Friday, October 28, 2011, at 12:30 pm, at Hendon Cemetery, at the burial chapel (not the crematorium chapel).
