Book cover for The Last Palace by Norman EisenAmbassador Norman Eisen served the U.S. as ambassador to the Czech Republic from 2011 to 2014. Upon appointment, he returned to the land his mother had fled after the Holocaust. He moved into the ambassador’s residence in Prague. He was startled to discover swastikas hidden beneath the furniture in his new home. These Nazi symbols were remnants of a forgotten history and evidence that we do not live far from the past. A captivating tale of four remarkable people who called this "palace" home unraveled. Eisen tells their stories woven with his mother's, demonstrating how those without power and privilege moved through history.

Norman L. Eisen is a CNN political commentator, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, and board chair of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). He writes regularly for the New York Times, USA Today, and Politico. He is an attorney who previously served as White House special counsel for ethics and government reform and later as U.S. ambassador to the Czech Republic.
