I am an eighth-grade student in California doing a National History Day project (www.nationalhistoryday.org) on Dr. Jan Zabinski, a Righteous Gentile. Dr. Zabinski was the Warsaw Zoo Director and hid many Jews in the empty animal cages and helped get them forged papers so they could “blend into the Aryan community.”

The Yad Vashem website has a short article on him. However, I am trying to document what he did and am hoping some of your members either remember him or heard of him. Or, perhaps, your organization may have some documentation on him. I am also Jewish, so this project is especially meaningful for me.

Any help you can give me or suggestions, would be a great help.
