My Slovakia, My Family simultaneously tells the story of the Slovak nation and of John Palka’s

extended family, which includes his grandfather, Milan Hod┼ża, the Czechoslovak prime minister

from 1935 to 1938. 

John Palka, Professor of Biology Emeritus at the University of Washington, is a two-time refugee

who acculturated to, and built a successful career in, the United States, but who never lost a deeply

-felt connection with his Slovak homeland or his facility with the language. Video clips of John's
