FAMOUS REFUGEES. Part -III

Madeleine Albright (U.S. Secretary of State)

In 1997 Madeleine Albright became the first woman to be appointed U.S. Secretary of State. The daughter of a Czech Jewish diplomat, she was forced to flee ahead of the advancing German army. She became a refugee during World War II in England, where she lived through the Blitz. Her family returned to Czechoslovakia after the Nazis were defeated, but escaped to the U.S. after the Communist takeover of their country. So, her family became refugees a second time. Just like my father had migrated twice, once from Hyderabad to Dacca and again from Dacca to Pakistan.

She arrived on Ellis Island in 1948 at age 11 and her family settled in Denver, Colorado. The rest is history. This is what she has to say about the refugees; “I think it enriches our country to have refugees here.”
