Follow "His father Tivadar (also known as Teodoro Ŝvarc) was a lawyer and a well-known -speaker editing a literary magazine ('Literatura Mondo') who had also been a prisoner of war during and after World War I until he escaped from Russia and rejoined his family in Budapest. The two married in 1924. In 1936, Soros's family changed their name from the German-Jewish Schwartz to Soros, as protective camouflage in increasingly antisemitic Hungary. Tivadar liked the new name because it is a palindrome and because of its meaning. In Hungarian, soros means 'next in line,' or 'designated successor'; in Esperanto it means 'will soar'."

Just an interesting thing about .
