Bergmann was born in Przeworsk, Poland, on December 13, 1879. He graduated from the University of Berlin in 1905 and became a physician. Bergmann became a German Citizen in 1913. On March 11, 1916, during WWI, he was decorated with the Merit of the Golden Crown Medal by the Emperor of Austria for bravery. Bergmann was discharged from the Austrian Army in 1918. In 1935, he was issued the Cross of Honor, which was given to all WWI combatants. On June 5, 1939, at the height of Nazism, Bergmann's physicians license was revoked by the German government. On April 11, 1939 he was issued an immigration visa from the American Vice Consul in Berlin and on June 25, 1939 he was issued a visa through Belgium. On October 3, 1945, Bergmann became a naturalized citizen of the United States in St. Louis, Missouri where he and his family settled.
