Tina Strobos died Monday in Rye. She was 91.
Jur Strobos tells the Journal News (http://lohud.us/wz5eT4 ) that his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer several years ago.
The Dutch native took Jews into her Amsterdam home and then led them to other hiding places. She also doctored passports for them and stashed guns stolen from the Germans.
The director of the Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center in Purchase said none of the Jews she helped were ever captured.
Strobos practiced psychiatry after coming to the U.S. in 1951.
Her name is inscribed at the Holocaust Memorial in Israel.
