March 2017: The Zookeeper’s Wife

Official CBC March 2017 selection:

The Zookeeper’s Wife
Book written by Diane Ackerman
Film Dir. Niki Caro

After their zoo was bombed, Polish zookeepers Jan and Antonina Zabinski managed to save over three hundred people from the Nazis by hiding refugees in the empty animal cages. With animal names for these “guests,” and human names for the animals, it’s no wonder that the zoo’s code name became “The House Under a Crazy Star.”
