1939: the Germans have invaded Poland. The keepers of the Warsaw zoo survive the bombardment of the city, only to see the occupiers ruthlessly kill many of their animals. The Nazis then carry off the prized specimens to Berlin for their program to create the “purest” breeds, much as they saw themselves as the purest human race. Opposed to all the Nazis represented, the keepers risk their lives by hiding Jews in the now-empty animal cages, saving as many as three hundred people from extermination.
