Synopsis

Based on the true story of Antonina and Jan Żabiński, the keepers of Warsaw Zoo who used it as a hiding place for threatened Jews after it was partially destroyed by invading Nazi troops. Given permission to remain living at the zoo despite most of their animals having perished during a bombing raid, the Żabińskis hatch a plan to help their Jewish neighbours avoid persecution by offering shelter amongst the ruins of the zoo. However, a close working relationship with Nazi officer Lutz Heck, who plans to use the zoo’s remaining facilities to further his own projects, puts their covert mission under threat.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
