      plot summary

      This fascinating documentary sheds new light on the story told in The Zookeeper’s Wife, the remarkable account of Antonina and Dr. Jan Żabiński, recognized as Righteous Among the Nations for their heroic rescue of Jews during the Holocaust in Poland. Following the German takeover of Warsaw in September 1939, 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. Weaving together archival materials, recreations and testimonies of witnesses and survivors, Of Animals and Men tells an extraordinary tale of courage and passion.
