I'm helping my daughter-in-law research her grandfather, Walter Lesniczek. What we know is that he was born in Poland, town unknown, around 1924. At age 16, he was supposedly conscripted into the armed forces (would imagine Polish forces, but he would have been 16 in 1940, and the Germans and Russians would have had controlled). Sometime during the war, he joined one of the allied forces, unknown which one. After the war, he was stationed in Germany, where he met his wife, Zophia (maiden name unknown). She was also born in Poland, and was working in post-war Germany. In 1948, he immigrated to Canada, two years later, Zophia and their son Richard followed Walter to Canada. I haven't been able to find and birth, marriage or immigration records for any of them. (I have checked Ancestry.com and Ellis Island). Any info on this family would be greatly appreciated

The Polish equivalent of Walter is Władysław, and less commonly, Ladislaus ( Ladysław ), so when searching take this into account.
You may well have already seen this obituary notice for Zofia, and although there is no information regarding Walter, it does at least list other family members:

Thanks for the feedback Pam. I actually have that obit already. Walter and Zophia never really talked much about their time in Poland and Germany, so not even their offspring know very much. Walter is actually still alive, but when anyone starts asking historical questions, he shuts down. Unfortunately we can't make him talk if he doesn't want to. It's kind of a shame. The kids haven't given up though, they routinely ask a few questions now and again. Hopefully someday he'll feel like answering
