A clear, simple narrative delivers a vivid picture of what happened. It was touching to see the dedication and interest of the children and of Ms. Ishioka to find out as much information as possible with just a name to start with. Well done.
I believe that this book is also suitable to readers aged 12+.
Told in flashbacks, we learn about Hana Brady, her loving hard working parents and her older brother George, a middle class family living in Czechoslovakia who just happened to be Jewish. And because they were Jewish they were targeted by the Nazis, first the father was arrested, then the mother and finally the children were taken, and Hana who was then just 13 years old was killed upon her arrival at Auschwitz.
However her older brother George somehow survived the Holocaust and the determined museum curator tracked him down and George Brady, now a Canadian, was finally able to lay the memory of his little sister to rest.
In 2002 he went to Tokyo and met the curator and the many school children who saw in that simple piece of luggage the very essence of who his sister had been, Hana Brady, schoolgirl, artist, daughter, game player, sister, dreamer granddaughter and finally a victim of the Holocaust.
A moving book for all ages, short and simple, well worth a read.
Goodbye Hana Brady
If you are interested in reading true life stories about holocaust victims, this book is a must. It is also inspirational in showing how to make the holocaust events meaningful
to a new generation.
