SummaryThis documentary tells the story behind Karen Levine's award-winning children's book, Hana's Suitcase. A Holocaust story brought to life, the film recounts the efforts of Japanese historian, Fumiko Ishioka, the director of the Tokyo Holocaust Education and Resource Center, who traced the journey of a 13-year-old Holocaust victim, Hana Brady, through her suitcase. Her quest led to a surviving brother, George Brady, in Canada and the creation of the book.
