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)
Her book "The Hiding Place" is well worth reading.
Yes, the book is excellent
One of the most amazing women who ever lived. Read "The Hiding Place". It is great.
Corrie Ten Boom....I will meet you in heaven. What an inspiration she is.
She has kind eyes
Yes she does indeed. She was the epitome of kindness. She was able to forgive one of the camp guards in a face to face meeting after the war was over.
I met her when I was a little girl. She read some excerpts of her book "The Hiding Place" and spoke about her life before, during and after the concentration camps. I remember her being a very warm, loving and gracious woman. Her courage has always inspired me.
I read someplace that she was wearing no clothes and in line when she hid her Bible. By praying. She was amazed the Germans never saw it.
Janelle, How fortunate you were to have had that opportunity. She has been an inspiration to me also. Whenver something bad or difficult is happening to me she comes to mind and I realize that nothing in my life has ever been as bad as what she went through. That helps me keep perspective.
A woman who was not afraid to do what was right
I have read this book, I was very young, made impact on me.
I have read her books...her faith and forgiveness was awesome!!!!
