Ambassador Andrew Schapiro will explore his mother’s story of immigration from Czechoslovakia to the United States in 1939. She was left as a small child in Prague and was later reunited with her parents in the United States, although most of her family did not get out. Seven decades later, Schapiro was appointed to serve as the representative for the country that saved his mother in the country which she escaped. In his role as ambassador, Schapiro witnessed the return of populism and nationalism in the Czech Republic and Eastern Europe and will address these contemporary challenges.
