Deczkowski after release from Pawiak prison, March 1942

Deczkowski left school in 1939, the year of the September Campaign, and joined the Home Army. During the invasion, he became a runner with the Polish Scouting Association, which was then operating as the underground Szare Szeregi. In 1944, he took part in the Warsaw Uprising as a member of the Batalion Zośka.

In 1949, during the darkest years of Stalinism in Poland he was arrested by the Polish security service and sentenced by a military court to 5 years in prison. After his release, he graduated from the Warsaw University of Technology in November 1953, and became an inventor of medical equipment.

He published in Poland two books of wartime memoirs "Wspomnienia żołnierza baonu AK "Zośka" and "Wróbel" z "Kamieni na szaniec".
