Madeleine Albright's quest for Jewish roots

Madeleine Albright was 59 years old when she learned she was of Jewish decent and that dozens of her family had perished in the Holocaust. As the former US Ambassador to the United Nations, she was in the midst of becoming the first female US Secretary of State. Her parents had already died, leading her on a quest to find out about her Jewish roots. She's written a book titled "Prague Winter: A Personal Story of Remembrance and War, 1937 to 1948." She traveled to her hometown in the Czech Republic and even visited Terezin, the concentration camp. Today, she's involved with many organizations working to end genocide throughout the world.
