"How do couples stay together for decades? Living Happily Ever After explores this crucial question through the lives of thirty American couples who have been together for at least thirty years. In personal, intimate interviews and charming vintage and contemporary photographs, these pairs reveal their private experiences of marriage and couplehood. From Gil and Becky Johnson, both blind, who have raised three children together, to Helma and Benno Schneider, who came together in a concentration camp and survived to marry and raise a family, to Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon, women who met in the 1950s and have stayed together for over forty years, these couples have lived extraordinary lives."

Hana’s Suitcase by Karen Levine

Once there was a little girl named Hana Brady. She lived in Czechoslovakia with her beloved family. She liked to ski cross-country with her brother and play with her wolfhound and her fluffy, white kittens. She helped her father at the family’s general store. More than 50 years later, a suitcase with her name on it was sent to an education center in Japan. School children learned all about Hana and what happened to her during the Holocaust, a story told with words and photos in Hana’s Suitcase.
