Mark Webber was born in Pułtusk, Poland on March 29, 1928. In 1939, Mark and his family were forced by the Germans out of Pułtusk and marched to Białystok. From there, the Russians took the family to a town in Northern Russia where they performed forced labor. Eventually the Russians moved the family to Uzbekistan where they stayed for the remainder of the war. After the war the family moved back to Poland with the intent to move to Palestine. However, after losing his parents, Mark decided to move to the United States.
