Inside Media: Madeleine Albright

December 09, 2012
Location: Walter and Leonore Annenberg Theater

Guest: Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright talks about her new book "Prague Winter: A Personal Story of Remembrance and War, 1937-1948," which chronicles her experiences growing up during World War II.

The book takes readers from the capital city of Prague where Albright was born, to the bomb shelters of London where her family moved following the invasion in 1939, to the desolate prison ghetto of Terezin.

Albright also reflects on the discovery of her family's Jewish heritage many decades after the war and the choices her parents and their generation faced as events unfolded on the world stage.

Albright is the author of the New York Times bestsellers "Madam Secretary," "The Mighty and the Almighty," "Memo to the President" and "Read My Pins." She was U.S. Secretary of State from 1997 to 2001. Her career includes positions in the National Security Council, on Capitol Hill and as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
