Westheimer, Ruth - still image [media]

Westheimer, Ruth - still image [media]

The 4-foot 7-inch grandmother "Dr. Ruth" Westheimer forever changed America's ideas of sexual education and literacy by highlighting positive attitudes towards sex through the lens of Orthodox Judaism. Less known are the tragic episodes in the life of the young Karola Ruth Siegel: the German Depression, the Holocaust and Israel's War of Independence.
