Great WWII Resource. I plan to use it as take home extra credit assignment.
It is September 1, 1939 and the Nazis have just invaded Poland, bombing Warsaw and nearly destroying its zoo. The zookeeper Jan Żabiński and his wife Antonina do all they can to save their animals. After witnessing the horrible conditions in the Ghetto, they decide to use the zoo’s basements and tunnels to smuggle Jews to safe houses. Heroically, they risk their lives to save as many during this dark time in Poland.
