A human rights group is honoring an 89-year-old New York woman who hid more than 100 Jews in Amsterdam during World War II - not far from Anne Frank's house. Retired psychiatrist Tina Strobos will be at Monday's ceremony hosted by the Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center in Westchester County, the New York Times reported. Strobos was a medical student when she risked her life to hide Jews in the home she and her mother shared. The fugitives lived in a secret compartment near the attic. Strobos also took ration stamps by bicycle to Jews hiding at farms and hid guns for the Dutch resistance. She was repeatedly stopped and questioned by the Nazis. But she said it was "the right thing to do."
