Born in East Prussia in 1924, Dorothy Bohm moved to Lithuania in 1932 with her family to escape the threat of Nazism. Bohm was sent by her parents to safety in Britain in 1939, armed with a Leica camera handed to her by her father at the very last moment. These photos taken with her Rolleiflex captured the energy and dynamism of life in London in the 1960s.
