Corrie Ten Boom helped many Jews escape the Nazi Holocaust by hiding them in a secret room in her family's home. Eventually she was arrested and taken to concentration camps, including Ravensbruck. While imprisoned she held Bible studies using a small Bible she managed to sneak passed guards. After the war she aided Holocaust survivors, traveled as a public speaker to over sixty countries and wrote eight books. (Submitted by Michaela Jaros)
