Dockett’s seven page memoir describes her childhood experiences during World War II, being protected from arrest and then going into hiding, the fates of some of her Jewish school friends, and immigrating to the United States. Photographs depict Rose Hammer wearing the yellow star and Dockett with her mother and sister.
