Dr. Ruth Reflects on Escaping Nazi Germany 80 Years After Kindertransport

Posted on January 14, 2019

Before she became a world-renowned Sex Expert, Dr. Ruth Westheimer was 10-year-old Karola Ruth Siegel, one of thousands of Jewish children in Germany saying goodbye to their families for a life-saving journey. “If I had not been sent from Frankfurt. If I had not been on that train on January 5, 1939 from Frankfurt to Switzerland I would not be alive,” Westheimer said. Sadly, the rest of her family was murdered. An exhibit at the Center for Jewish History showcases the rescue effort.
