The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman


Like so many other books I have read this summer, The Zookeeper's Wife caught my eye every time I walked by the 900s, but I didn't have time to read it until now. Ms. Ackerman has written a vivid account of Jan and ___________ lives during WW II as zookeepers who sheltered more than 500 Jews from Nazi persecution in occupied Warsaw.
