George Vladar was born in Vienna in 1923 to Karl and Margarete Marie Bittermann, née Biheller. Margarete Biheller converted to Christianity in 1913, and because of this managed to survive the Nazi period protected in a "mixed marriage" in Vienna. After the Second World War George Vladar immigrated to Canada.
