Children who saw the suitcase on display were full of questions. Who was Hana Brady? What happened to her? They wanted Fumiko Ishioka, the center's curator, to find the answers.

In a suspenseful journey, Fumiko searches for clues across Europe and North America. The mystery of the suitcase takes her back through 70 years, to a young Hana and her family, whose happy life in a small Czech town was turned upside down by the invasion of the Nazis Download and start listening now!

    " A great two-part story for today's youth about one little girl' experience during the Holocaust. Very simple, but also very moving. "

    " I thought this was a very age appropriate book for kids to learn about world war II. I know that some of the other mom's didn't like some of the material, but I don't know how you can get around the death and some of the heinous realities of what went on during a major part of world history.

    " I really enjoyed reading this book and would reccommend it to anyone who is interested in reading about how one family was torn apart by the Nazi invasion on a small Czech town. I was completely moved by all that this family endured and found myself in tears by the end of the story. This story opens with the arrival of Hana's Suitcase at a Museum in Tokyo, Japan. Fumiko, the director of a musuem, and a group of young children begin to as questions about the suitcase and they set off on a quest to discover all that they can about Hana and what her life was like. The book alternates between Fumiko and the children at the museum in Tokoyo, Japan during the year of 2000 and the Brady family's from 1930-1944. "
