Two years after the release of The Zookeeper’s Wife, which portrayed Antonina and Jan Żabiński’s extraordinary rescue operation during the war, this fascinating documentary sheds new light on their story. The couple saved hundreds of Jews from the Warsaw ghetto by hiding them in the city’s zoo facilities and their own villa, right under the noses of the Nazis. Composed of archival footage and interviews with their daughter, Teresa Żabińska, and survivors, this film is a moving tribute to the courageous couple.
