May 1945. The war in Europe has come to an end. Bombardments by the Allies and house-to-house combat between the German Wehrmacht and the Russian Red Army have turned the city into a pile of rubble.The impressive 19th century zoo next to Tiergarten Park has also suffered heavily from the violence of war. Many stray bombs came down on the premises. During the battle of Berlin, the zoo turned into a battlefield as tanks and shells left their destructive traces.The premises of the zoo, once so well-attended, has deteriorated to a gruesome cratered landscape. Dead soldiers and carcasses of animals lie scattered everywhere. Less than 100 of the approximately 3,500 animals have survived. “War Zone Zoo” tells the gripping tale of the Berlin Zoo, its employees and its animals in wartime. Its history and restoration also pass review.This is a story of how violence and dictatorship made the Berlin Zoo lose its innocence, but it is also a story about love for animals, human powers of survival and the rebirth of the historic and public icon the Berlin Zoo still is today.
