Corrie ten Boom was a Dutch watchmaker who became a heroine of the Resistance, a survivor of Hitler's concentration camps, and one of the most remarkable evangelists of the twentieth century. In World War II she and her family risked their lives to help Jews and underground workers escape from the Nazis, and for their work they were tested in the infamous Nazi death camps. Only Corrie among her family survived to tell the story of how faith ultimately triumphs over evil.
Here is the riveting account of how Corrie and her family were able to save many of God's chosen people. For 35 years millions have seen that there is no pit so deep that God's love is not deeper still. Now The Hiding Place, repackaged for a new generation of readers, continues to declare that God's love will overcome, heal, and restore.

- Great Read! by Jen on 1/15/2016
I really enjoyed this book. It was a little boring at first, but as I continued reading it started getting more and more interesting. It's such an amazing story. The memoir is a true account of Corrie Ten Boom's experience in German occupied Holans during WWII (and afterwards in prisons and concentration camps.) The most amazing thing to me is she was not Jewish. She was a Dutch Christian who freely sacrificed her own life, and the lives of those she loved most, to fight against cruelty and hate. I loved the paradox of tragedy not told as a tragedy. Unimaginably hossible things happen...and yet it's told as a story of forgiveness and gratitude for the constant miracles and mercies of God.
