The Polish journalist and commentator Leopold Unger has died at the age of 89.

Polish media said Unger, a Holocaust survivor who was born in Lvov in 1922, died Tuesday in Brussels, where he had lived for many years.

Unger was forced to leave Poland along with thousands of other Jews following the Communist regime’s anti-Semitic campaign in 1968.

An authority on Soviet and eastern European affairs, he wrote for publications including the International Herald Tribune, Radio Free Europe, the BBC and Poland’s Gazeta Wyborcza, and also wrote books. He received the Polish PEN Club’s award in 2009.
