Sex Therapist- Single Mother- Sniper! Most know Dr Ruth Westheimer 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. Noted psychologist Dr. Ruth recalls finding her unique place in this world through humor, brilliance, and realizing that size doesn’t matter.
