Zoo Keepers Wife
This was an amazing story of courage and compassion.
The upcoming movie might be better!
Diane Ackerman is really not writing an interesting true story about the Warsaw Zoo and it's zookeepers hiding and protecting Jews during WWII. She is documenting the lives of those rescued. I'm sure her efforts will help in the future as the stories of the Holocaust become impossible to believe. Just too much detail on the lives of the rescued for my taste. It disrupts the narrative.

Good historical view. Slow moving and ended rather abruptly.
