The Last Palace

Europe's Turbulent Century in Five Lives and One Legendary House

Norman Eisen

In 2010 Norman Eisen was appointed US ambassador to the Czech Republic, from where the Nazis deported his mother. Here, he tells her story and those of four previous occupants of the ambassador’s Prague residence: the Jewish banker who built the house; the German general who occupied it; the US ambassador who tried to save Czechoslovakia from Soviet domination; and his successor Shirley Temple Black, who witnessed the country’s return to democracy. Slightly off-mint and felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
