Former Secretary of State Dr. Madeleine Albright will speak at the World War II Memorial on Friday, May 8, 2015 to pay tribute to the Greatest Generation during a special event commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Allied Forces Victory in the Atlantic and the end of #WWII in Europe.

Dr. Albright served as Secretary of State during the Clinton Administration. She was the first woman to hold that position. Born in Prague, Czechoslovakia, Dr. Albright and her family spent the war years in exile in England. Raised Catholic, Dr. Albright did not learn until adulthood that her parents were originally Jewish and that many of her relatives in Czechoslovakia had perished in the Holocaust, including three of her grandparents.
