Ernő Simon

Before becoming the spokesperson and senior communications associate in Hungary for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, he worked for twenty years as a world politics and world economy journalist first for the Hungarian newspaper Magyar Nemzet, then for the Hungarian business newspaper Figyelő. After working in the position of editor-in-chief at Figyelő, he dedicated himself in April 2012 to serve all those around the world who are forced by war, violence and persecution to save their lives by fleeing from their homes, leaving everything behind. He graduated from an international journalism programme in Moscow in 1992, and he has often used his Russian language skills to help the Ukrainian refugees coming to Hungary recently.
