Albright unveils plaque to family in Terezín

Former US secretary of state Madeleine Albright, on a personal visit to the Czech Republic, unveiled a plaque in Terezín on Friday honouring 26 members of her family who were sent to the Jewish ghetto in the town during WWII and suffered and perished at the hands of the Nazis. Albright, who is 78, only learned of her Jewish heritage in the 1990s. On Thursday, the former secretary of state visited the town of Letohrad where her father had lived.
