36.1 Dr Ruth Westheimer Dr. Ruth Westheimer is the world most famous sex therapist, but that is almost the least remarkable thing about here. Born to a German Jewish family in 1928, Ruth's happy childhood was shattered when Adolf Hitler came to power. Her parents then made the ultimate sacrifice, sending their daughter to safety on the Kindertransport to Switzerland. They would die in the Holocaust. Ruth’s life is traced from becoming an ardent Zionist, travelling to Palestine after the end of World War Two, where she was trained as a sniper by the Jewish underground., and eventually moving to France, and then to the United States – where she met her soul mate, Manfred Westheimer. 112 SA 05/17/14 09:05pm 00:49:36 - (CC) × ST
