Further Information

This page is one of several donated by Dorothy Fleming. This document is from June 1940, and contains information for the local population of rationing and up-coming information and events of importance. Dorothy Fleming was born Dora Oppenheimer in Vienna, Austria, and as a young child enjoyed family life. Dorothy lived with her parents, her sister, and her paternal grandmother ‘Little Grandma’, while her maternal grandparents lived across the road. As the family were in increasing danger from the rise of Nazism and the persecution of Jewish people, Dorothy and her sister were sent by their parents to England on the Kindertransport in January 1939. After the girls had left Dorothy’s father, Erich, who had been an optician in Vienna was able to secure a permit to come to England through the help of a friend.
