The original award-winning story plus over sixty pages of new letters, photographs, art and reflections on the ten years since the story's publication.
The response since Hana's Suitcase was first published ten years ago has been overwhelming. Hana's story has spread across the globe and been translated into dozens of languages, honored with numerous awards, adapted for the stage and transformed into several films. The United Nations uses it in over 100 outposts, Archbishop Desmond Tutu wrote a foreword and Michelle Obama was presented with a copy during an official visit to Prague. 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.
