The Zookeeper's Wife tells the account of keepers of the Warsaw Zoo, Antonina and Jan Zabinski, who helped save hundreds of people and animals during the German invasion.
The current Warsaw Zoo opened on 11 March 1928. However, its roots can be traced to 17th century private menageries.
I was raised with these people. Gentile, Jewish. It didn't matter to my family. It never mattered to me.
Several scenes inside the Warsaw zoo show palm trees. At 52 degrees plus north latitude (a bit farther north than Calgary Alberta Canada) Warsaw Poland is way too far north to have palm trees. Therefore the zoo scenes were obviously shot at a more southerly location.
