Terezin – Former U.S. secretary of state Czech-born Madeleine Albright made her palm print for a gallery in Terezin today and on this occasion she recalled 24 members of her family who died in various concentration camps during World War Two.
The gallery is situated in the former garrison town of Terezin that served as a ghetto for European Jews during World War Two, while the nearby Small Fortress turned into a Gestapo prison.
Albright learnt about her Jewish origin only in the other half of the 1990s when journalists revealed that her grandparents and many other relative became the Holocaust victims.
