The Hiding Place (MP3 CD)
Unavailable for purchase.
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
At one time, Corrie ten Boom would have laughed at the idea that she had a story to tell. For the first fifty years of her life, nothing out of the ordinary ever happened to her. She was an old-maid watchmaker living contentedly with her sister and their elderly father in the tiny Dutch house over their shop. Their uneventful days, as regulated as their own watches, revolved around their abiding love for one another. But with the Nazi invasion and occupation of Holland, everything changed. Corrie ten Boom and her family became leaders in the Dutch underground, hiding Jewish people in their home in a specially built room and aiding their escape from the Nazis. For their pains, all but Corrie found death in a concentration camp. Here is a story aglow with the glory of God and the courage of a quiet Christian spinster whose life was transformed by it.
