Publisher's Summary

In March 2000, a suitcase arrived at a children's Holocaust education center in Tokyo, Japan. On the outside, in white paint, were these words: Hana Brady, May 16, 1931, and Waisenkind - the German word for orphan. 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

Critic Reviews

"Skillfully, and with great sensitivity, Levine weaves together the two stories, alternating that of a young life shattered in increments and that of Fumiko Ishioka's relentless search for answers." ( The Globe and Mail)

Haven't Read and Probably Won't

I didn't realize this was juvenile fiction --- I've listened to quite a few young adult books that I've enjoyed, but the narrator on this one is young (sounds like it) and because of that it's difficult to listen to -- that young and perky narration doesn't work for me -- even though I'm sure it's a very good story (why I didn't want to give it a one star). I'm interested in Holocaust history, but this is one that I would have to read from a book, which probably won't happen.
