Zookeeper’s Wife: Film & Talk-Back

Catholic-Jewish Studies Film Series: Educational Films with Scholars

How is it possible to resist evil even in the most unlikely places? This film tells the true story of how Jan & Antonina Zabinski, the stewards of the Warsaw Zoo in 1939, rescued hundreds of Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto while putting themselves at great risk.

UWM Professor of History and author, Dr. Neal Pease, has dedicated much of his career to research on the role of the Catholic Church in Polish history. Dr. Pease will present an introduction to the film and will conduct a talk-back following the showing.

Free & open to the public.
