27.11.2012 - Madeleine Albright
From 1997 to 2001 Madeleine Albright was the United States Secretary to President Bill Clinton. She was the 64th secretary of State, and the first woman in this position. At BorderKitchen she will talk about the non-fiction book.
It was not until 1997, when she had already been appointed by US President Bill Clinton, that Albright discovered an important part of her family history: her grandparents were Jewish and were killed during the Second World War. In the recently published Prague Winter: A Personal Story of Remembrance and War, 1937-1948, the former Secretary of State looks back on her youth in 1930s Prague. It is a search for the unknown roots of her Jewish family and the history of her motherland, Czecho-Slovakia.
At BorderKitchen she will talk about the non-fiction book Prague Winter. The interviewer is Willem Post.
For the organisation of this BorderKitchen we would like to say a special thanks to the municipality of The Hague and publisher Ambo.
