Hana's Suitcase is a surprisingly well written and entertaining story, despite the tragic tone contained in the book.
This isn't a simple story about the Holocaust. This is the tale of a young child
who is too innocent to face the horrors she had to endure, and also of a lady willing to do anything to prevent such horrors from occurring again.
One of the notable elements of the plot is the juxtaposition of three different stories, located in different places with easily recognizable characters.
With a simple and delicate tone, Hana's Suitcase can transpose indescribable feelings. The book possessed few pages, which did not diminish its ability of touching the reader and entertaining people of all ages and tastes.
Often we look at the Holocaust and lose track of the number of innocents who lost their lives. Books like this show us that every one of those people had desires, people they loved and many dreams, all interrupted by the simplicity of human ignorance.
SENTENCE: A simple and easy read ensures the interest of many students and young readers. With only 112 pages, this is one of the books that everyone should read at least once in the course of their lives.
