Corrie ten Boom

Cornelia Johanna Arnolda ten Boom, generally known as Corrie ten Boom, (April 15, 1892 – April 15, 1983) was a Dutch Christian Holocaust survivor who helped many Jews escape the Nazis during World War II. Ten Boom co-wrote her autobiography, The Hiding Place, which was later made into a movie of the same name. In December, 1967, Ten Boom was honored as one of the Righteous Among the Nations by the State of Israel.

  1. This was a very good book and, surprisingly, the movie wasn't too bad, either. Her courage and devotion to the Lord were exceptional. Her sister died at Ravensbruck concentration camp, were Corrie was also imprisoned.

  2. I haven't seen the movie, would like to see it though...but will surely get me the book again! and thanks for mentioning it on the chess site! I really enjoy books like these!
