The Sydney Jewish Museum is proud to launch Year of the Dragon, authored by Nicky Gluch and illustrated by Leni Kae; a story written for the younger reader based on the story of Holocaust survivor Ilse Charny.
Ilse escaped from Vienna with her family to Shanghai during World War II. She bases Year of the Dragon on her life as a child in the Shanghai ghetto. As a child, Ilse first perceived the Nazis as dragons, and then the Japanese as dragons–and Ilse herself was born in the Chinese year of the dragon.
Nicky Gluch and Ilse will both speak about the story and the process of writing Year of the Dragon.

Sydney artist Leni Kae’s work ‘Find Me In a Field of Peonies’ has been selected for the 2019 Kennedy Prize Foundation’s Choice exhibition.
Each year the Kennedy Arts Foundation members invite an entrant to exhibit their artwork in an exhibition at the Kennedy Prize. This year the theme of the prize and exhibition was ‘Beauty’. Leni Kae’s entry artwork , a red toned abstract landscape painting, symbolizes walking through flower fields. Emotionally, it represents walking through memories of romance and romantic beginnings.
