Prague Winter. This is Madeleine Albright's detailed telling of her early years (1937-1948) when her family was forced into exile by the Nazi invasion of her native Czechoslovakia, at which time she traveled to England. She brilliantly details, step by step, the Nazi take-over, and what happened to the peoples of her native country as they were carted off by their captors.
MADELEINE ALBRIGHT, a Czech-born refugee, became the first woman ever to hold the post of United States secretary of state in 1997. She was granted political asylum in the U.S. in 1948 and became an American citizen in 1957.
