Becoming Dr. Ruth

America’s sex therapist Ruth Westheimer recounts her extraordinary life’s journey, from fleeing the Nazis to struggling to succeed as a single mother in America.

Becoming Dr. Ruth
By Mark St. Germain
January 8 – February 9, 2020
Everyone knows Dr. Ruth Westheimer from her career as a pioneering radio and television sex therapist. Few, however, know the incredible journey that preceded it. From fleeing the Nazis in the Kindertransport and joining the Haganah in Jerusalem as a scout and sniper, to her struggles to succeed as a single mother coming to America, Becoming Dr. Ruth is filled with the humor, honesty, and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the girl who became “Dr. Ruth”, Americaʼs most famous sex therapist.

WARNING: Strong sexual content
