Marilyn, I have read the Zookeeper's Wife, it is a true story about a couple running a Polish zoo. It tells the story of their heroic efforts to save as many Polish Jews as possible during WWII. Israel designated the couple as The Righteous Ones" for their efforts. It will depend on whether or not you would enjoy reading about the plight of Jews during Hilter's reign. I have been reading about it since the 70s when I started reading Leon Uris books.
