Film Inside Hana’s suitcase is a touching story of two children who grew up in the WWII Czechoslovakia and the terrible events that they endured just because they happened to be born Jewish. The plot starts from the present day as a group of Japanese pupils and their teacher Fumiko Ishioka use the suitcase that originates from Nazi death camp to find out about the life of its owner, Hana Brady, Jewish woman that was imprisoned as a child during World War II. In March 2000, that suitcase arrived at Holocaust Educational Centre in Tokyo. On the exterior side of the suitcase, written in white, stood the text: Hana Brady, May 16 1931. alongside with the word Waisenkind- German for orphan. The pupils who saw the suitcase were full of questions. Who was Hana Brady? What had happened to her? They wanted Fumiko Ishioka, their teacher and Center director, to find out the answers.
