About this show

Don't miss the triumphant story of Karola Siegel, the girl that became "Dr. Ruth" When she was very young, Karola was forced to leave her family and flee from the Nazis in the Kindertransport. With no home to return to after the war, she joined the Haganah in Jerusalem as a scout and sniper. She married, became a single mother and moved to America to pursue her dreams as Ruth Westheimer. "Becoming Dr. Ruth" is filled with the humor, honesty and life-affirming spirit of a girl who found her own unique place in this world as America's most famous sex therapist.
