In the spring of 2000, Fumiko Ishioka, the curator of a small Holocaust education centre for children in Tokyo, received a shipment from the Auschwitz museum. Among the items she received was an empty suitcase with the words "Hana Brady, May 16, 1931, Orphan" written on it. Fumiko and the children at the centre took it upon themselves to find out what became of Hana. The heartbreaking story they uncovered of a brave young girl killed in the Holocaust and survived only by her brother, George, was captured in Karen Levine's book, and became an icon in Canadian children's publishing.

A story about the life of a little girl, named Hana, during the Holocaust.
A story of how a determined Japanese woman, in 2000, pieces the puzzles of Hana's story and brings it back to life.

Karen Levine has brought these two stories together in order to tell both stories in one book. The way Levine has written the story is by going back and forth between the two different stories. It is interesting how and why she did this... which I will be talking about.

K. Levine starts off her book by introducing the readers to Fumiko Ishioka; the lady who pieced together Hana's story with lots of determination; in the year 2000. Levine then goes on to tell us HANA'S story. By going back and forth between these two stories it constantly keeps the reader's on their toes. As a reader, you are given hints that lead to questions such as "Who's Hana?", "Why is Hana important?", "What does the SUITCASE have to deal with anything?", "Hana or Hanna?", "Does Fumiko Ishioka ever find George? Is he alive?"... and many more questions that get answered. She tends to almost tease her readers by giving the 'what' and 'who' leaving her readers trying to solve the 'how' and 'why'.

By the book jumping back and forth between the two stories, it can be a bit confusing. For me, I did not like the style at all until i got 1/2-3/4 into the book when I relaized how the two connect. At that point, it made me just want to figure out how these two different stories from 1930's-1940's and 2000's correlate with one another. It is almost like a mystery which makes the reader want to know more and more about.

Levine did an amazing job connecting the two stories and tying them together. She showed how they both correlate with each other very well.

Foreshadowing and giving hints.
We learn about how Fumiko gets her hands on pictures drawn by Hana while she was in the camp. Later in the book, we learn the story of how they used to hide in the attic and have secret lessons including art, which helped the children escape the horror. The art that Fumiko got her hands on is the exact art (well copies) that Hana drew in the attic. Within the book, Levine includes other foreshadowing and hinting towards things to keep us interested in the story.

The photographs, drawings by Hana, documents, and other primary sources really bring more life towards this book. For some reason, we sometimes can't picture things AS REAL, if it is just words in a book. We find it 'REAL' when primary sources are put to our attention, bringing us goosebumps. ( )
