Mr. Sichrovsky spent the war years as an exile from Nazi Germany in England. In 1942, he volunteered for the British Army and served for almost five years in India, Malaya, Ceylon, Burma, and at Lord Mountbatten's Headquarters at Kandy. His experiences in the Army stimulate his keen interest towards Asian socio-political affairs. After the war, he returned to his homeland, took up Journalism and, at the same time, continued his studies on Asian affairs. He stayed in Asia several years and has done extensive reporting on Asian subjects and has written books on India, Korea, China and South East Asia. He had done interviews with China's Prime Minister Chou-En-Lai, India's Indira Gandhi and other heads of state of the Asian region.
Professor Sichrovsky is a board member and lecturer of the Ludwig-Boltzmann Institute of China and South East Asia Research in Vienna, and was a visiting fellow at Nairobi University in Kenya. In 1983 he was a speaker in the 17th Jose Rizal Lecture at Fort Santiago, Manila. Since 1970, he has been foreign editor of ORF, Austria's Radio and TV Service specializing on China, Korea and South East Asia.
