Literary Giants: The Zookeeper's Wife: A War Story

Location: Madison Meeting Room
Date: Monday, September 27, 2010 - 6:30pm - 7:30pm

When Germany invaded Poland, Stuka bombers devastated Warsaw—and the city's zoo along with it. With most of their animals dead, zookeepers Jan and Antonina Zabinski began smuggling Jews into empty cages.

Jan, active in the Polish resistance, kept ammunition buried in the elephant enclosure and stashed explosives in the animal hospital.
