Description

Recommended for ages 10 & up

At some point, it is best that children be told the truth.

When a child's suitcase arrives at the tiny Children’s Holocaust Centre in Tokyo, the curator embarks on an extraordinary journey to uncover the story of Hana and her fate at the hands of the Nazis. This true story, originally a radio documentary and then an international best-selling book, premiered at YPT in 2006 with two of its real-life protagonists in attendance, George Brady and Fumiko Ishioka. YPT's successful production toured to Winnipeg, Edmonton, Montreal, and Vancouver and in 2015/16 will revisit Geordie Productions in Montreal and premiere at the Seattle Children's Theatre.
