The Zookeeper’s wife – DVD to be shown at the Film Club Thursday October 26 

page 40 the zookeeper

The time is 1939 and the place is Poland, homeland of Antonina Zabinski and her husband, Dr. Jan Zabinski. The Warsaw Zoo flourishes under Jan’s stewardship and Antonina’s care. When their country is invaded by the Nazis, Jan and Antonina are forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck. The Zabinskis covertly begin working with the Resistance and put into action plans to save the lives of hundreds of Jews by using the zoo’s hidden tunnels and cages to save them from Nazi brutality.
