Madeleine Albright on Prague Winter “A Personal Story of Remembrance and War”

May 7, 2012

Madeleine Albright discusses her book “Prague Winter: A Personal Story of Remembrance and War, 1937-1948.”

From Publishers Weekly:

The author’s childhood reminiscences of her first 11 years and savvy grasp of history inform this absorbing account of Czechoslovakia’s travails and Albright’s family’s suffering in the Holocaust. The daughter of a diplomat in the Czech government who migrated from Prague to wartime exile in London and back to postwar Prague, former secretary of state Albright (Madam Secretary) sketches lively recollections of weathering the Blitz and other adventures, but her narrative mainly investigates things hidden from her as a child.
