More about Szabolcs


Szabolcs was one of many in the Roma community who were targeted by a far-right anti-Roma march in their hometown of Devecser, Hungary, in 2012. His friendships with non-Roma locals were negatively affected after the demonstration, having formerly celebrated birthdays and played football together, as many took part in the march. The residual impact of the demonstration caused fear that left many, including children, needing psychological support. Szabolcs has three sons and has been trading in second hand goods for 20 years.
