The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman

this month in my book club we are reading the Zookeeper’s Wife. I was really looking forward to this book. I saw the trailer for the movie and was instantly interested. 

we all heard of the money stories during the war about Germany and Poland. 

in this book, Jan and Antonina have a zoo in Warsaw. the area is invaded and bombed by Germany. 

Jan and Antonina do not lose hope and end up hiding ‘guests’ in the animal cages and in their home. 

I don’t want to spoil the book. we all know how the war ended but it’s more than about a war. it’s about a couple that take the love they have for animals to save people. 

I truly enjoyed this book. I’m looking forward to discussing this in book club. I’m also looking forward to seeing the movie.
