The Zookeeper's Wife With WHC Books

WHC Books opens their season with a discussion of the captivating, popular book, The Zookeeper's Wife, by Diane Ackerman.

The Zookeeper's Wife is a unique Holocaust story with the Warsaw Zoo as its setting. Risking their lives, Antonina and Jan Zabinski saved Jews by hiding them in in their home and the zoo. Even though there were Nazi soldiers close by, the hidden Jews went undetected. Recently made into a major motion picture, we will compare and contrast the movie and book in the discussion.

To reserve a copy of the book, contact our librarian at eshare@whctemple.org.
