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

extended family, which includes his grandfather, Milan Hodža, 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

interview for the Oral History Project conducted by the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library

can be seen athttp://www.ncsml.org/Oral-History/All-Interviews/20100407/39/Palka-John.aspx.
