For eight years, during Bill Clinton's two presidential terms, Albright was a high-level participant in some of the most dramatic events of our time—from the pursuit of peace in the Middle East to NATO's intervention in the Balkans to America's troubled relations with Iran and Iraq. In this thoughtful memoir, one of the most admired women in U.S. history reflects on her remarkable personal story, including her upbringing in war-torn Europe and the balancing of career and family responsibilities, and on America's leading role in a changing world.
Washington DC: United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, 2003. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. , vi, 86 pages. Illustrations. A sense of duty and obligation to share experiences and memories is real and present for many Holocaust survivors. The Memory Project provides survivors who volunteer at the Museum with a powerful outlet through which to bear witness. These guided writing workshops strengthen the ability of our survivor writers to recount their experiences for their families and for the historical record. This is one more way that the Museum helps survivors—eyewitnesses to the Holocaust—to teach new generations about hatred, intolerance, and indifference, and to expand our understanding of Holocaust history from a deeply personal perspective. The Memory Project is based on the Leave-A-Legacy Writing Workshops developed by the Drew University Center for Holocaust/Genocide Study, to whom we are grateful for training and guidance.
