An international bestseller and remarkable true story. When Hana's suitcase arrives from Germany at the small Holocaust education centre in Japan, all the children who visit want to know about Hana. When Fumiko Ishioka, the centre's curator, decides to find the answers, she embarks on a journey of discovery across Europe and North America, and seventy years of history.

'Really, it's a very ordinary looking suitcase. You could fit quite a lot in it. Books, games, treasures, toys. But nothing is inside it now. Across the front, there is a girl's name, Hana Brady. A date of birth: May 16 1931. And Waisenkind. That's the German word for orphan.'
Where did Hana Brady come from? Where was she going? What did she pack?
What Fumiko finds in Hana's suitcase is a true story of terrible sadness and great joy.
'Such a simple little book and yet so powerful.' Sunshine Coast Sunday.
