Maria Paasche, who helped Jews escape from Nazi Germany, died at 90. In the 1930s, Paasche transported Jews on her motorcycle to Prague before that city came under Nazi occupation. Paasche, whose father and brothers separately tried to assassinate Hitler, later briefly moved to Palestine and Japan with her Jewish husband before settling in the United States.
