Inside Inside Hana’s SuitcaseOne of the great horrors of human history, the Holocaust is the title of millions of interlocking stories that span tragedy to comedy, despair to hope. The delivery of a battered suitcase from the Auschwitz Museum to director Fumiko Ishioka of Tokyo's Holocaust Education Resource Center marked the beginning of one of those stories. Ishioka, along with a group of young Japanese students, made it her mission to unearth the fate of the little girl whose name was painted across the suitcase front: Hana Brady. Ishioka's search for Hana's identity, and the story she discovered, is the subject of Larry Weinstein's documentary Inside Hana's Suitcase, opening in New York tomorrow, April 18th.
