Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The New York Times bestseller now a major motion picture starring Jessica Chastain. A true story in which the keepers of the Warsaw Zoo saved hundreds of people from Nazi hands. After their zoo was bombed, Polish zookeepers Jan and Antonina Zabinski managed to save over three hundred people from the Nazis by hiding refugees in the empty animal cages. With animal names for these "guests," and human names for the animals, it's no wonder that the zoo's code name became "The House Under a Crazy Star." Best-selling naturalist and acclaimed storyteller Diane Ackerman combines extensive research and an exuberant writing style to re-create this fascinating, true-life story—sharing Antonina's life as "the zookeeper's wife," while examining the disturbing obsessions at the core of Nazism. Winner of the 2008 Orion Award.

Download or read book The Zookeeper's Wife written by Diane Ackerman and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2013-05-09 with total page 308 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In war-torn Warsaw, a zookeeper and his wife refuse to surrender... Now a major motion picture starring Jessica Chastain and Daniel Brühl, Diane Ackerman's The Zookeeper's Wife is based on a remarkable true story of bravery and sanctuary during World War II. Perfect for fans of Lion and Hidden Figures. 'I can't imagine a better story or storyteller. The Zookeeper's Wife will touch every nerve you have' -Jonathan Safran Foer, author of Everything is Illuminated When Germany invades Poland, Luftwaffe bombers devastate Warsaw and the city's zoo along with it. With most of their animals killed, or stolen away to Berlin, zookeepers Jan and Antonina Zabinski begin smuggling Jews into the empty cages. As the war escalates Jan becomes increasingly involved in the anti-Nazi resistance. Ammunition is buried in the elephant enclosure and explosives stored in the animal hospital. Plans are prepared for what will become the Warsaw uprising. Through the ever-present fear of discovery, Antonina must keep her unusual household afloat, caring for both its human and animal inhabitants - otters, a badger, hyena pups, lynxes - as Europe crumbles around them. Written with the narrative drive and emotional punch of a novel, The Zookeeper's Wife is a remarkable true story. It shows us the human and personal impact of war - of life in the Warsaw Ghetto, of fighting in the anti-Nazi resistance. But more than anything it is a story of decency and sacrifice triumphing over terror and oppression. What readers are saying about The Zookeeper's Wife: 'Beautifully and sensitively written - a must read' 'An adventure that inspires' 'Both horrifying and endearing on a scale I've not experienced in years' 'A story that will haunt you forever' 'Haunting, life affirming, sad, and inspiring'

Book excerpt: The Zookeeper's Wife A Look at the War Behind the Story Book Preview: Jan Zabinski was the director of the Warsaw Zoo in the 1930's. He worked together with his wife Antonina who had a remarkable love towards the animals. They had a villa in the zoo which contained a nursery and was a home for a big number of animals. The couple had a son that lived there too. This life that they built for themselves came to an end with the start of the German invasion on September the 1st 1939. Nearly all of the animals that were living in the Zoo were killed by the bombings and their cages were also destroyed. The Zoo was under German occupation but the family still lived in the villa and had a pig farm. Antonina and her husband were the zookeepers in this Zoo which was one of the biggest and most prolific zoos in Europe in that period. In September 1939, Antonina opened the gates of the Zoo and along with the crowd that waited to see the animals, Miejski Ogrod Zoologiczny entered the Zoo.

This book was released on 2020-01-24 with total page 840 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Palgrave Handbook of Holocaust Literature and Culture reflects current approaches to Holocaust literature that open up future thinking on Holocaust representation. The chapters consider diverse generational perspectives—survivor writing, second and third generation—and genres—memoirs, poetry, novels, graphic narratives, films, video-testimonies, and other forms of literary and cultural expression. In turn, these perspectives create interactions among generations, genres, temporalities, and cultural contexts. The volume also participates in the ongoing project of responding to and talking through moments of rupture and incompletion that represent an opportunity to contribute to the making of meaning through the continuation of narratives of the past. As such, the chapters in this volume pose options for reading Holocaust texts, offering openings for further discussion and exploration. The inquiring body of interpretive scholarship responding to the Shoah becomes itself a story, a narrative that materially extends our inquiry into that history.

Start Publishing Notes' Summary, Analysis, and Review of Summary, Analysis and Review of Diane Ackerman's The Zookeeper's Wife: A War Story includes: Summary of the book A Review Analysis & Key Takeaways A detailed "About the Author" section Preview: Diane Ackerman's The Zookeeper's Wife is the story of Antonina Zabinski, the wife of Jan, director of Warsaw's zoo in the 1930s. When the Nazis invaded Poland in 1939, the zoo fell into disrepair, but Jan joined the Polish resistance, and he and Antonina saved 300 Jews by hiding them in their home and helping them escape Poland. The book makes extensive use of Antonina's unpublished diaries. Antonina's parents had worked in Russia and been executed during the 1917 Russian Revolution when their daughter was nine. Antonina was raised by her grandmother; she studied piano and then moved to Warsaw. She met Jan, who was eleven years older than her, while working as an archivist in Warsaw's School of Agriculture. Jan became Warsaw zoo director in 1929, and the two married in 1931.
