Further Information

This photograph forms part of the Dorothy Fleming Collection. The picture was taken in 1938, and shows Dorothy on the left with her little sister, Lisi. Dorothy was born Dora Oppenheimer in Vienna, Austria, and as a young child enjoyed family life with her parents and sister. The photograph was taken by Dorothy’s father, Erich, in December 1938. 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. The picture was one of several taken by Erich as the family gathered to say goodbye to girls prior to their journey to England. The picture is part of a collection which depict the family's life and experiences, and many were taken by Dorothy’s father and uncle, who was able to develop his own photographs.
