Madeleine Albright was the first woman to hold the Secretary of State position for former president Bill Clinton. She became known as an advocate for peace in the Middle East and for bringing war criminals to justice. In her new memoir, she chronicles her traumatic early life in Prague during the Nazi occupation, through the end of World War II and the beginning of the Cold War.

This talk was recorded at Seattle's Town Hall on February 23, 2013 and was moderated by Eric Liu, a former speechwriter for Bill Clinton.
