Diane Ackerman - Gli Ebrei dello zoo di Varsavia

È il 1939, i bombardamenti tedeschi devastano lo storico zoo della capitale polacca: Jan e Antonina reagiscono allo sgomento e salvano gli animali superstiti. Ma ben presto il razzismo nazista si accanisce sugli uomini: quando iniziano i pogrom contro gli ebrei, i due coniugi non esitano a trasformare lo zoo in un rifugio per i perseguitati, creando un mondo alla rovescia in cui gli "ospiti" segreti vengono chiamati con il nome in codice degli animali di cui occupano la gabbia vuota, mentre le bestie portano nomi di persona. Al disprezzo per chi è diverso e alla follia di voler imporre alla natura un disegno mitomane, Jan e Antonina oppongono il rispetto per gli esseri viventi, che siano animali in pericolo o ebrei polacchi, "uomini in via d'estinzione". Basandosi sul diario di Antonina e su molte altre fonti storiche, l'autrice ha recuperato dall'oblio una storia vera di coraggio e compassione.

The bestselling author of A Natural History of the Senses now explores the allure of adultery, the appeal of aphrodisiacs, and the cult of the kiss. Enchantingly written and stunningly informed, this "audaciously brilliant romp through the world of romantic love" (Washington Post Book World) is the next best thing to love itself.

Nature is patient, people and animals fundamentally decent, and the writer, as she always does, outlives the killer—that is the message of The Zookeeper's Wife. This is an absorbing book, diminished sometimes by the choppy way Ackerman balances Antonina's account with the larger story of the Warsaw Holocaust. For me, the more interesting story is Antonina's. She was not, as her husband once called her, "a housewife," but the alpha female in a unique menagerie. I would gladly read another book, perhaps a novel, based again on Antonina's writings. She was special, and as the remaining members of her generation die off, a voice like hers should not be allowed to fade into the silence.
