Sunday 18 August
The Sydney Jewish Museum is proud to launch Sunshine, Memory and the Healing of Time, the memoir of the life of Holocaust survivor Egon Sonnenschein.
This detailed and moving memoir explores the impact of Nazism on the Jews of Yugoslavia. This book takes the reader on a journey, through the pain of leaving his home and never forgetting the kindness of various strangers who saved his family and the life of his adopted sister, their eventual migration to Israel and then to South Africa, and their arrival in Australia in the early 1980s.
This book will be launched by Daryl Karp AM, Director of the Museum of Australian Democracy in Canberra.
Daryl was awarded the 2017 Telstra Business Women’s Awards in Public Sector and Academia Award and was made a Member of the Order of Australia for her significant service to the arts, particularly to the museum and galleries sector in 2019.
This is a free event but bookings are essential.
