The Hiding Place
By Corrie Ten Boom, Elizabeth Sherill, and John Sherrill
A long awaited and deserved new edition of this enduring and moving classic.
As the Nazi madness swept across Europe, a quiet watchmaker's family in Holland risked everything for the sake of others, and for the love of Christ. Despite the danger and threat of discovery, the ten Boom family courageously offered shelter to persecuted Jews during the Nazi occupation of Holland. Then a trap brought about the family's arrest. Could God's love shine through, even in Ravensbruck?
Corrie ten Boom's personal story is an inspiration to millions and has continued to be a bestseller since its original publication in 1972. It has also been made into a popular feature film. She and her family risked their lives to hide Jews in their house during the Second World War.
