This is a true story in which Fumiko Ishioka, the director of the Tokyo Education Resource Center in Tokyo, Japan, reaches out to museums for artifacts with which to teach Japanese children about the Holocaust. After much effort, she was given a package of items, of which one, a suitcase which had belonged to Hana Brady, a Czechoslovakian child murdered by the Nazis, motivated her to teach others about the Holocaust by breaking the experience down to just one individual and searching for more information about her.

This book is written for school-age children, but it is well worth reading by any adult. I was surprised that anyone in Japan with their own suffering during World War II would put so much effort into learning about a Jewish child in Europe. However, the theme is the importance of learning about others who differ from ourselves culturally and seeking the human and decent things about them-- thereby learning how we are all more alike than different.

The book not only tells Hana's story well, but it provides photographs to bring it alive and much closer to to hearts of those who read it. It’s beautifully done. ( )

There is now a small museum in Tokyo that is dedicated to the European Holocaust during WW2. It is called the Tokyo Holocaust Education and Resource Centre. It was started up by a woman named Fumiko Ishioka who asked the Auschwitz museum for some items from the war to be sent to her for display. One of the items that was sent to Japan was a battered brown suitcase with the name Hana Brady painted on it.

This is the story of Fumiko's search for Hana Brady, her biography, and the search for documentation about Hana's whereabouts, during and after the war. Sadly Hana was marked as having been murdered in the camps. Fumiko was however successful in finding Hana's brother George, who now lives in Canada.

George and Hana both survived living for 2 years in the ghetto camp known as Theresienstadt from 1942 to 1944. In 1944, they were both sent by train to Auschwitz. It has been said, but with no proof provided, that Hana was gassed upon her arrival. George being older than Hana was sent to the labour camp. He later escaped during the forced death marches (January 1945) when the Germans were retreating from the Russian advance. After the war George later emigrated to Canada where he still lives.

In 2004 it was discovered that the suitcase that had been sent to Japan was in fact not the real suitcase that belonged to Hana Brady. That suitcase was destroyed in a fire in 1984. So the Auschwitz Museum created a replica and chose to not tell anyone.

“Hana’s Suitcase,” is one of the most celebrated Holocaust books for young readers and was recently reissued by Second Story Press. In 2002, it won the Sydney Taylor Book Award and then went on to garner nine more literary honors, including the National Jewish Book Award and the Canadian Library Association’s Book of the Year.

This Book has also been made into a Film and a Stage Play as well. This Book is suitable for children aged 10 and older.

This is a children's book. It tells an interesting story, but I have trouble with some of the documentation used. The fact that the suitcase sent to Japan was not the REAL Suitcase, means that the Auschwitz museum deliberately told a lie. My natural response is to ask - How many other lies have they told? ( )

Hana’s suitcase was one of the most eye-opening and heart wrenching stories I have ever read, and the fact that it is a non-fiction book, makes it that much more real. From the beginning, this book captivated me and I could not stop reading. I could tell from the tone of the book that this would end badly. I felt like I knew Hana, after learning about her family and all the fun times they had, so it was hard seeing what she had to go through. This was my first time ever crying over a book. I give this five stars because it the way it was written was done so well and the photographs really pulled everything together. ( )

Firstly, this book had to get 5 stars because we share the same name. But truly, I think the Holocaust is SUCH an interesting topic, and that made this book so easy to read through! The use of flashbacks was awesome, and I enjoyed reading the two stories that came together so perfectly! I'm so glad they found Hanna's story.+ ( )

Hana's Suitcase is the most interesting nonfiction book I have ever read. Karen Levine goes back and forth from a Japenese teacher named Fumiko Ishioka and Hana's holocaust story. Fumiko wanted to educate her students about the turmoil of the holocaust. Her mission was to make sure that people knew all about it so that it would not happen again. She sent letters to all kinds of museums to borrow some things to show her students. She was turned down many times, but she received a package that contained Hana's suitcase. We learn that Hana was a young, Jewish girl that was murdered upon her arrival at Auschwitz in a gas chamber. Her brother, George, survived the war and responded to Fumiko with pictures and stories about his sister. She and her students were even able to meet him and his daughter. Hana's story was not forgotten.
Hana resonates with me because she wanted to be a teacher. She was in third grade when she was not allowed to go to school anymore. She tutored some of her friends until they stopped coming around because she was Jewish. I was not expecting to read that she ended up dying as soon as she got to Auschwitz. It was very difficult to see that. When I read stories like this, it really reminds me of how the world once was and how close we are to doing horrible things to people again. We still have people in cages. It's just like we, as a human race, never learn our lesson. I hope that the more we educate people, the more understanding we can become. I really enjoyed reading about Fumiko as a historian and teacher. It was very interesting to see her passion about teaching things like this to her students. I hope to make an impact like her one day. ( )

On March 15, 1939, Hitler’s Nazi troops marched into the rest of Czechoslovakia and the Brady family’s life was changed forever. The Nazis declared that Jews were evil, a bad influence, dangerous. From now on, the Brady family and the other Jews in Nové Město na Moravě would have to live by different rules.
As well as learning the truth of the Holocaust, it is also very important for children, we believe, to think about what they can do to fight against racism and intolerance and to create peace by their own hands. 
(Fumiko Ishioka in a letter to Hana Brady’s brother, George Brady - August 22, 2000)
It’s very important to know about the past and to struggle—in our own ways, in our own corners of the world—for a more just and tolerant future.
(Karen Levine, author - Bonus Material: “A Remarkable Legacy”)
