Everyone is welcome to join a discussion of The Zookeepers Wife: A War Story by Diane Ackerman.

The Zookeeper's Wife is a strange, but historically true story of WWII. It reveals the extraordinary efforts of Jan and Antonina Zabinski, Christian zookeepers horrified by Nazi racism, who capitalized on the Nazis' obsession with pureblood animals in order to save over 300 doomed people by hiding them in the bombed-out cages at the Warsaw Zoo. 

This program is co-sponsored with the Bacon Free Library. It is FREE and open to the public.
