Let's discuss Madeleine Albright's memoir, Prague Winter

  • Jun 3, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Flyleaf Books

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright tells on her personal discovery at the age of 59 of her family's Jewish heritage and the fact that more than two dozen of her relatives had died in the Holocaust.  She writes about her visits to the small towns in Czechoslovakia where her parents grew up and about memory and the second world war.  The themes of the book are universal:  loyalty and betrayal, respect and bigotry, accommodating evil or fighting back.  How and why to people make choices in moments of crisis?

Join us for a discussion of this extraordinary book that blends history and memoir told by an engaging storyteller.

    I've read the book and really enjoyed it -- reminded me of a two-week trip to the Czech Republic a few years ago. At that time I visited many of these small towns. Among them was Liberec where there is a Reconciliation building that combines a beautiful public library and a triangular synagogue (1/2 the star of David). This is the site of the old synagogue that was burned down on Kristallnacht (Nov 9, 1938) and referred to in Albright's memoir. I am sad that I will not be in town to join you for this book discussion but I'll be in Turkey.

      I'm sorry you won't be there but hope you have a wonderful time in Turkey and that you'll have stories to share when you get back. I'm enjoying learning much about the Czech Republic I didn't know and hope to visit it one day. I like Allbright all the more from the reading.
