A Final Note

Hands Suitcase is a story filled with
the unexpected, an almost unbeliev-
able maze of twists and turns.
The truth about the suitcase itself is
no different.
Fumiko Ishikoka, curator of the
children's Holocaust Education
Center in Tokyo, received the suit-
case in March 2000. She, like every-
one who saw it, believed the suitcase
had actually belonged to Hana.
Then the daughter of George
Brady, liana's brother, was looking at
an early photograph of the suitcase
and the case Fumiko had received
from the museum at Auschwitz.
(Fumiko had traveled to Poland
earlier, where she met with the muse-
urn director. She wanted a few items
to place in her museum, physical
objects people could see and touch to
help them better understand the way
individual lives had been destroyed.
(After a brief meeting, the
Auschwitz museum director sent
Fumiko the suitcase, along with a
case of Zyklon B gas, a child's sock,
shoe and sweater.)
George's . daughter noticed a differ-
ence in the handle. A slight differ-
ence, but a noticeable difference.
The truth has since come out: The
suitcase Fumiko received was a repli-
ca; the original case had been
destroyed in a fire in 1984. The suit-
case Fumiko received was, nonethe-
less, almost exactly like the one Hana
had owned.
"This came as a complete surprise
to all of us," Karen Levine says,
"though nothing would have been
any different" had they known it was
a copy. ❑ .
