Alper JCC Book Fest Ambassador Norman Eisen

Description The 38th Alper JCC Berrin Family Jewish Book Festival features Ambassador Norman Eisen and his book "The Last Palace." When the ambassador moved into his residence in Prague, he was returning to the land his mother had fled after the Holocaust. In his new home he was startled to discover swastikas hidden beneath the furniture, remnants of the residence’s forgotten history. From that discovery unspooled the captivating tale of four of the remarkable people who had called this palace home – a Jewish financial baron; a cultured German general; the first postwar U.S. ambassador; and Ambassador Shirley Temple Black. Eisen weaves in the story of his own mother during the war, to represent people who were without power and privilege.
