Dr. Ruth . . . Really?

Karola Ruth Siegel was born in Germany in 1928, the only child of an Orthodox Jewish couple. In 1939, after her father had been taken by the Nazis, her mother and grandmother sent her to Switzerland. She never saw her family again, as her mother and grandmother died in the Holocaust. When she was 17 years old, Holocaust survivor and world renowned sex therapist, media personality and author, Dr. Ruth Westheimer emigrated to then British-controlled Mandatory Palestine and joined the Haganah in Jerusalem. What was she trained to do?
