Suitcase of Dreams: In Conversation with Tania Blanchard

Thursday, 26 August 2021

Based on true events, Suitcase of Dreams tells the story of Lotte and her family’s arrival to Australia from Europe in 1956.

After enduring the horror of Nazi Germany and the chaos of post-war occupation, Lotte and husband Erich were full of hope for a new life.

It’s a land of opportunity and they dreamt of giving their children the life they have always wanted.

Until darker shadows of the past reach out to them from Germany, a world and a lifetime away.
