Ilana Shmueli is a writer from Israel who was born as Liane Schindler in Czernowitz (Bukovina) in 1924. Her father was a factory owner, her mother came from a Viennese Jewish family. Shmueli attended a Romanian school until 1940 and afterwards, until 1941, a Yiddish school.

Ilana Shmueli was, among others, acquainted with Oskar Kokoschka and Rose Ausländer. She was a friend of Paul Celan. She met Celan again in Paris in 1965. He visited her in Jerusalem in 1969. The schoolday friends were closely connected by both their interest in music and poetry. Until Celan's death, an active exchange of letters started which Ilana Shmueli published in 2004.

She translates from Hebrew and German and began to write poetry quite late in her life. Her poems and autobiographical prose texts are published in various magazines and anthologies. She published several books in Rimbaud Verlag.

In 2009 she received the Theodor Kramer Prize of the Theodor Kramer Society, which is awarded to authors writing in a context of resistance or exile.
