Zookeeper's Wife

The SCC Book Group will be meeting at Library to discuss the book Zookeeper's Wife: a War Story by Diane Ackerman.

This is a true story as powerful as Shindler's List in which the director of the Warsaw Zoo and his wife Antonina sheltered 300 Jews as well as Polish resisters in their villa and in animal cages and sheds during the Nazi occupation of Poland. Using Antonina’s diaries and other sources, Ackerman takes us into the Warsaw ghetto and the 1943 Jewish uprising.

Join the SCC Book Group, Thursday November lst, noon to 1:00, at Faculty Development Center, L-115, to discuss this amazing book.
