This is a children's book, but it is a well done children's book. In March of 2000, a suitcase arrived at a children's Holocaust education center in Tokyo, Japan. There was the name of a young girl painted on it, and from there the mystery progressed. The children in the center wanted answers about the suitcase. Where had it come from? Whose name was on it? This prompted the director of the center, Fumiko Ishioka to set out on a search across Europe, a search for information that was almost 70 years old. I though this was a great book, I never really thought about how to teach Japanese children about the Holocaust. Seeing as they are physically so far removed from Europe would present real challenges. A good book for children to learn about the horrors of the Holocaust, but, in an age appropriate way.

This was a forced purchased for mandatory summer reading last summer. Both my 10 year old daughter and I enjoyed the book. Instead of reading it in order we read the chapters from the past first and then the chapters from present day...chronological order. That made it easier for her to understand. I would recommend this book to any 4-6 grade child. Tells a good story and teaches life lessons. No wonder it was a mandatory assignment.

Hana Brady was 13 when she was sent to Auschwitz. She was immediately put to death, but her story didn't end there. With her she'd carried a suitcase which had followed her from her home to her aunt and uncle's house to a Jewish ghetto in Czechoslavakia and finally on to her final destination. Many years later, Fumiko Ishioka decides to open a Holocaust Museum in Japan in order to teach young people about the horror. One of the items she is sent to display is the suitcase which bears the name of Hana. Her children become adamant that they must know more about this girl, so Ishioka goes to work. She tenaciously goes to the prison camp where Hana lived for 2 years and discovers much more than she'd planned. This is the story of undying human spirit told in a way that children as young as 8, 9, or 10 can understand. Levine does a unique job of presenting the facts in a moving way without becoming mired down in gruesome details. This story will touch your heart and you will be unable to forget the story of Hana and her suitcase.

An intriguing true story. I loved the photos along with the narrative about Hana and her experiences. Fumiko is a special teacher who directed the Japanese children to find answers about Hana's suitcase. I would recommend this book for older children to learn about the lives of Jewish children in the 1930-1940 time period. Even as an older adult, I could not lay the book down until it was done.

Wonderful story. I enjoyed reading it (as an adult) very much. I did feel like it is more geared towards kids, but an amazing book still the same.

What a touching and informative book. My nine year old enjoyed learning about Hana and I was overwhelmed by the story of her life as well. I highly recommend.
I'm always interested in reading about the Holocaust!
