The Zookeeper’s Wife: A War Story, by Diane Ackerman

Taking place during World War II in Warsaw, Poland, this is the story of Jan Zabinski, the director of the Warsaw Zoo, and his wife, Antonina.   It is a remarkable account of courage and determination to shelter people from Hitler’s tyranny.  As always, Ackerman’s writing is outstanding.

RATING: * * * * Very, very good
