Corrie ten Boom was a brave woman who hid and witnessed to many Jews in Holland. She risked her life to help these people during World War II. She was also part of the Dutch Underground and Resistance. In 1944 the ten Booms were caught and Corrie and her sister were sent to a concentration camp in Berlin. After a few years in the camp she was mysteriously released and found her way back home. Through her experience Corrie learned many things and witnessed many miracles. She has gone all around the world sharing her story to millions of people who need encouragement.
(I had the privilege of hearing Ms. ten Boom speak in the late 1970's. What a wonderful speaker with such a powerful story to tell! I highly recommend her book to you, The Hiding Place."
