Gyorgy Schwartz

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Gyorgy Schwartz was born in Budapest back in 1930 to Tivadar and Erzebet. There is so much to write about him that I will only hit some of the highlights. If you want to know more you’ll need to look him up. Anyway, the family changed their name in 1936 to avoid the wrath from when Nazi Germany occupied Hungary.

The family emigrated to England in 1947. He attended the London School of Economics graduating with a master’s in philosophy. He worked as a railway porter and a waiter while attending college. After graduating he was a traveling salesman for a wholesaler to the Welsh seaside resorts.

He finally landed a job as a clerk at a bank later moving on to the arbitrage department. He moved several times before founding a fund management of his own and as they say the rest is history.

What you may not know about Gyorgy Schwartz is the name change his family made was to Soros. That’s right Gyorgy Schwartz is now George Soros, he is known as the man who broke the Bank of England. Not bad coming from a Jewish family, surviving the holocaust during WWII. Until tomorrow my wish is for you to smile a lot and have a laugh or two thrown in for good measure

Hi James.  I knew about George Soros as he and I both come from Budapest.  George Soros gets a lot of bad press from conservatives, but a closer look will show him as a great philanthropist.

Good morning James Dray,

We all learn so much from your shouting out names of those that made the news in history. I always thought he was Greek and interesting to read Gabe Sanders comment. You do have to look at several sides..always interesting perspectives to consider.

Very cool, I have read a couple of his books and feel that he is a very good man.  I have heard some differing opinions though, seems there is always two sides to every story, but I still feel like he is a good man, haha.

He is one if my favorite people out there and how good he is at what he does is reflected in the ridiculous conspiracy theories.

I am not a huge fan of Mr Soros however I enjoyed reading Gabe Sanders perspective of the man James...

James, being a Hungarian I prefer not to be mentioned in the same company, he is one of the most unscrupulous and unethical people you will ever meet on the face of this earth and just to give you an idea he is not even welcome in Hungary... I totally disagree with our friend Gabe Sanders  perspective, he is not a philanthropists he is a calculated obstructionist... but that is my two cents, Endre

P.s.: it is not about conservative or liberal it is about ethics...
