Description for Bookstore
Hana's story continues to fascinate readers around the world. With this new edition of the book, the continued stagings of the play, the documentary film, and soon a feature film, we are reassured that Hana's story will not be forgotten.
Main Description
In the spring of 2000, Fumiko Ishioka, the curator of a small Holocaust education centre for children in Tokyo, received a shipment from the Auschwitz museum. Among the items she received was an empty suitcase with the words "Hana Brady, May 16, 1931, Orphan" written on it. Fumiko and the children at the centre took it upon themselves to find out what became of Hana. The heartbreaking story they uncovered of a brave young girl killed in the Holocaust and survived only by her brother, George, was captured in Karen Levine's book, and became an icon in Canadian children's publishing. The response since the book was first published has been overwhelming. This new edition is full of special features.

This new book includes the original story, plus commemorative letters from Karen Levine, Fumiko Ishioka and George Brady. Also included are letters and art from readers around the world, photographs of events and ceremonies, scenes from the play adaptation, covers from international editions, images from the documentary film and more.
