Recently, this story has been presented in the feature film “The Zookeeper’s Wife.” Now, we can learn more about its real-life protagonists – Antonina and Jan Żabiński. Before WWII, they ran the Warsaw zoo which, during the war, gave shelter to many people, mostly Jews. This extraordinary tale of courage and great passion is made of archival materials, staged fragments and testimonies of witnesses and survivors.
