Czech Refugee Becomes U.S.Secretary Of State: Madeline Albright born May 15th 1937

Born Marie Jana Korbelová; May 15, 1937 – Her family, which was Jewish, narrowly avoided extermination at the hands of the Nazis. They fled to England shortly after Hitler’s tanks rolled into Czechoslovakia in 1938. She arrived on a ship called the SS America, an 11-year-old refugee fleeing tyranny for freedom.

Albright  attended Wellesley College in Massachusetts, graduating with honors in 1959, and got a doctorate from Columbia University. She could speak six languages, including Czech, French, Polish, Russian and English.

Albright was a central figure in President Bill Clinton’s administration, known as a blunt and brilliant analyst of world affairs who shattered the political glass ceiling.

She was named US ambassador to the United Nations when Clinton first took office in 1993 before becoming America’s top diplomat from 1997 to 2001. At the time, she was the highest-ranking woman in the history of US government.
