The Hiding Place: The Triumphant True Story of Corrie Ten Boom (Mass Market)
The Ten Boom family were a Dutch Christian family who aided Jewish people during the Holocaust. They felt it was their duty to aid and at one point even had a hidden room built into their family home, which was above the family clock repair shop. The title refers to both the physical hiding place where the Ten Boom family hid Jews from the Nazis and also to the Scriptural message found in Psalm 119:114: "Thou art my hiding place and my shield...." While many of their family were captured or killed by the Nazis, all of the Jews they helped made it through the war. A beautiful story of faith, compassion, duty, and strength.— Jason
“I pray that God forgive them...”
Corrie Ten Boom stood naked with her older sister Betsie, watching a concentration camp matron beating a prisoner. “Oh, the poor woman,” Corrie cried. “Yes. May God forgive her,” Betsie replied. And, once again, Corrie realized that it was for the souls of the brutal Nazi guards that her sister prayed.
Both woman had been sent to the camp for helping the Jews. Christ’s Spirit and words were their guide; it was His persecuted people they tried to save—at the risk of their own lives; it was His strength that sustained them through times of profound horror.
Here is a book aglow with the glory of God and the courage of a quiet Christian spinster whose life was transformed by it. A story of Christ’s message and the courage woman who listened and lived to pass it along—with joy and triumph!
