In his latest publication, The Last Palace: Europe’s Turbulent Century in Five Lives and One Legendary House, Norman Eisen chronicles the fight for democracy in Europe through the eyes of the previous residents of the historic home where he lived as U.S. ambassador in Prague: its Jewish builder, its Wehrmacht occupier, the American envoy who fought the Cold War and the movie-star ambassador who ended it. He weaves together those lives with a fifth, his Czech-Jewish mother, a survivor of the Holocaust and Communism. Along with a discussion about this book, Mr. Eisen will discuss his work in developing anti-corruption and transparency strategies with U.S. and Czech law enforcement and his role in advancing security and defense initiatives between the two nations. The presentation will be followed by a book sale and signing.
