Summary, etc.:
Corrie ten Boom was a writer and historian. She was born in the Netherlands in 1892. In February of 1944, an informer turned the ten Boom family in to the Gestapo for hiding Jews in their watch and clock shop. Six family members and 30 friends were arrested. Casper, Betsie, and Christiaan ten Boom died as prisoners. Because of a clerical error, Corrie ten Boom was released, one week before all the women her age were killed. Ten Boom went on to tell her message of survival for the next 32 years in countries throughout the world. Her story became both the book and the movie entitled 'The Hiding Place.' Ten Boom died on April 15, 1983, her birthday, at the age of ninety-one. This is the remarkable story of Corrie ten Boom and her family who, at risk of their lives, followed the mandate of their Christian understanding by providing refuge to Jews marked for death by Nazi forces occupying the Netherlands during World War II.
