Hana's Suitcase

In August, The Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre (JHGC), in partnership with Constitution Hill, hosted a presentation by Fumiko Ishioka, Director of the Tokyo Holocaust Education Resource Centre, and Lara Brady, niece of Hana Brady. Based on Karen Levine’s internationally acclaimed and award-winning book, Hana’s Suitcase and entitled Historical Detectives, the event took place in the Women’s Jail at Constitution Hill. The following day a Hana’s Suitcase- Historical Detectives workshop was held for a diverse group of Grade 9 learners.

Radio Today broadcast a special Heritage Day programme on 24 September featuring the presentation and interview with Fumiko and Lara.

 The JHGC and Constitution Hill work together on various projects as we seek to further our common goal of remembering the past and using this to teach the values of tolerance and human rights.
