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?
