On the 90th anniversary of Hana Brady's birth
Join us to meet Lara Hana Brady, Hana's niece, and
hear incredible stories behind artifacts from
the Brady Family archive.
Hana’s Suitcase is the story of a Czech-born Jewish girl, Hana Brady, who was killed at Auschwitz. In the year 2000, a suitcase with Hana’s name written on it was loaned to Kokoro - Tokyo Holocaust Education Resource Center by the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum.
Fueled by the curiosity of Japanese students, a year long research led us to Hana’s brother, George Brady, who was living in Toronto, Canada, and to the discovery of Hana’s story.
The story has been made into a book, theater and a film. Hana’s Suitcase has been traveling to over 1,200 schools reaching approximately 200,000 students giving them an opportunity to learn about importance of mutual respect, compassion, and understanding.
On the 90th anniversary of Hana Brady’s birth, we are inviting Lara Hana Brady, Hana’s niece. She will share with us incredible stories behind precious artifacts from the Brady Family archive while reflecting on the past 20 years she has spent together with her father George Brady, an Auschwitz survivor, to have dialogues with children all over the world.
While prejudice, discrimination and racism become more and more a challenge we share everywhere, we would like to make this anniversary day an opportunity to ensure respect for the dignity and human rights of all people regardless of nationality, religion, or culture.
