Madeleine Albright, born Marie Jana Korbelova on May 15 1937 in Prague is 70 today! Here is what she had to say on Czech radio:
“It felt much more like home when I first came in 1990, and first met President Havel, and I was just so proud of the way people were remembering the good things about the First Republic that I’d grown up with and were making such a great effort for democracy.
“I enjoy coming to Prague. I try to imagine what my parents’ life was like here in the 30s, when they lived here and were part of intellectual Prague.”
Vaclav Havel suggested her as President of the Czech Republic in 2003 – 🙂
