Mr Gorge Soros is a multi-billionaire that is included in the list of 50 richest people alive. He owns a leading company called Soros Fund Management; he is an investor, a philanthropist, and a writer. Mr George Soros is currently 85. He was born in 1930 in the capital of Hungary. His name used to be George Schwartz, but his father changed the family name to Soros when the former was at the age of six. During that time the German Nazi was a major force in Europe. The family was Jewish and they were being prosecuted although his parents were non-practising Jews. When Mr George Soros was a young boy, he was taken in by a Christian household. His father bought forged documents for him that gave him a false name and stated he was a Christian. The family split up to have a higher chance of survival. Many years later the Soros family was able to get back together in England. Mr George Soros started university in London. He graduated the London School of Economics.
