Hana's Suitcase - Karen Levine
The book goes back and forth between two stories: one about Hana and her family before and during the Holocaust, and one about a Japanese woman who received a suitcase and searched for more information about Hana and her family.

I like how the stories blend. One was equally as important as the other. I like the Japanese woman's persistence and the young groups interest in the suitcase, Hana, George and the holocaust in general and their eagerness to share what they learn with others in hopes that another holocaust will never happen again. I like Hana, her family and what they had up until everything fell apart.
