Diane Ackerman: "Everyday Heroism and The Zookeeper's Wife"

Wednesday, July 12, 2017 at 7:00pm

Kennedy Hall, Call Auditorium

The Zookeeper's Wife is a true story of people, animals, transcendence, and subversive acts of compassion. Jan and Antonina Zabinski were Christian zookeepers disgusted by Nazi racism, who decided to capitalize on the Nazis' obsession with prehistoric animals in order to save scores of doomed people. Diane’s talk will focus on how the power of human compassion can kindle our capacity for extraordinary acts of conscience and moral connection.
